What is -|5-12| ?

### Related Information

Question:

A
-7

explanation

This is what you start with: -|5-12|
Perform the operation inside the absolute value symbols, which is 5 - 12 = -7.
So the problem becomes: -|-7|
Since the value *inside* the absolute value symbols must be positive, when you remove the symbols, you are left with 7, but remember the negative sign that preceded it. This makes the answer -7.
