The distance from a point on the number line to zero; the absolute value is always positive.
An expression made up of three things: numbers, variables, and math operations; terms combined by an operation that has variables and numbers. 2a has a number, variable, and multiplication a+b has two variables, and addition

from quot-, "how many". The result of a division problem. 63 ÷ 9 = 7
The value of where the digit is in the number, such as units, tens, hundreds, etc.
It is when you give a value that is closest to the original value.
