#### Storyboard Text

• hi!, im night!﻿ and when we talk about how to find the opposite of an integer i think about a number line, for example the opposite of 5 is -5 because i'ts 5 values to the left of zero.
• *yawns* im grey paw, to find absolute value you have to find the distance between that number and zero and place "| |" symbols to show its absolute value.
• ﻿another example is -8 since there is a negative sign  it means that you will always go to the left
• for example 7, if﻿ there is no negative sign then you have to always go to the right of the number line.
• EEKK!!!﻿
• MOUSE!!!!﻿
• when it comes to finding absolute value you have to count the integers in between the numbers you chose and add a "| |" sign to show its an absolute value like i said previously﻿.
