(i) – 13, – 14, – 15, – 16, – 17

(ii) – 5, – 4, – 3, – 2, – 1, 0, 1, 2

**(11) Write the absolute value of each of the following.**

(i) 5 = 5

(ii) – 7 = 7

(iii) – 64 = 64

(iv) 0 = 0

(v) |- 7100| = 7100

(vi) – | – 6| = 6

**(12) Name two integers that have the given number as their absolute value.**

(i) – 19, 19

(ii) – 58, 58

(iii) – 70, 70

(iv) – 245, 245

(v) – 536, 536

**(13) Compare using <,> or =.**

(i) | 3 | = | – 3|

(ii) |- 8| > – | 8|

(iii) – | – 9| < – ( – 9)

(iv) | – 2| > – | – 2|

**(14) Write the following in descending order.**

(i) | 80 |, |- 75|, – (- 68), – 32, – | 52|

(ii) | – 50|, | 48|, – (- 28), – 47, – (- 52)

**(15) Write the following in ascending order.**

(i) – 64, – |- 58|, – | 13|, | – 18|, – (- 46)

(ii) – |- 54|, – 47, – (- 30), | 48|, |- 72|

**(16) Evaluate:**

(i) | – 5| + | 3|

= 5 + 3 = 8

(ii) | – 7| × |- 2|

= 7 × 2 = 14

(iii) |17| – |- 15|

= 17 – 15 = 2

(iv) |6 × 5| ÷ | – 5|

.= 30 ÷ 5 = 6

(v) | 7 – 3| × |5 – 5|

= 4 × 0 = 0
