# How do you simplify #abs( -9.56)#?

The question "How far do I need to travel along the number line to get to this number" is what we ask when we take the absolute value of a number, and that distance can be in any direction. The distance itself is a positive number.

The above question has an absolute value of 9.56 because we must move 9.56 spots along the number line to answer it.
