Absolute value of an integer is its numerical value without taking the
sign into consideration.
The absolute values of 9 = 9; the absolute value of 5 = 5 and so on.
The symbol used to denote the absolute value is, two vertical lines ( ), one on either side of an integer.
Therefore, if 'a' represents an integer, its absolute value is represented by a and is always nonnegative.
Note:
(i) a = a; when 'a' is positive or zero.
(ii) a = a; when 'a' is negative.
Examples on absolute value of an integer:
(i) Absolute value of  7 is written as  7 = 7 [here mod of  7 = 7]
(ii) Absolute value of + 2 is written as + 2 = 2 [here mod of + 2 = 2]
(iii) Absolute value of  15 is written as  15 = 15 [here mod of  15 = 15]
(iv) Absolute value of + 17 is written as + 17 = 17 [here mod of + 17 = 17]
Find the mod of:
(i) 14  6 = 8 = 8
(ii)   10 =  10
(iii) 15   6 = 15  6 = 9
(iv) 7 +  7 = 7 + 7 = 14
