    Absolute Value Simplify

    5(-6) + |11(-4)|

    Step 1: 5 x -6 = -30

    Step 2: -30 + 11 x 4 = 44 (changed the sign here because its a absolute value and became positve 4.

    Step 3: -30 + 44 = 14

    Step 4: Answer = 14


    I really appreciate all the help im getting. Im actually starting to remember and understand this stuff -vs- learning it in class. Correct me if i am wrong the help is appreciated.
