Absolute value is the distance of a certain number from zero. So when we say distance, we SHOULD always disregard the negative sign. So the absolute value of a number is always positive even when it carries the negative sign. But when the negative sign is outside the symbol of an absolute value sign, then that's when the number becomes negative. Example : -I5I = -5.
So therefore, the number given with the highest absolute value is -6.
