**What is an example of a abosolute value in the real world**

What is an example of a abosolute value in the real world

**Answer**

Think of distance.

You can't possibly have possibly ever walked -2.1 miles.

Distance is always positive, just like on a number line.

Absolute value -> the number of units from the origin (0).

Hope this helps!
