#### Storyboard Text

• First I'm gonna talk about absolute value, the distance from zero is what I'll tell you.
• Absolute Value
• OK, but how is Absolute value shown?﻿
• To show absolute value, just put the number in a jail cell. Remember this, and you will do very well.
• |﻿-8|=8
• For example, |-10| plus 10 equals twenty. More examples? I can give you plenty.
• |-10|+10=20
• 1 plus |-1| equals two, and with these examples we are through.
• 1-|-1|=0
• Yes, but why does this work?﻿
•  If you have a negative number and "put it in a jail cell," then you show how far awa﻿y it is from zero. |-10| is ten away from zero so |-10| plus 10 is equal to 10 plus 10.
