Sir you said that any number without an integer sign is positive so sir 0 should also have an absolute value as -0 because zero does not have any sign that means it is positive and its absolute value is -0.

Dear student,

An integer can be either greater than 0 called positive integers or less than 0 called negative integers. Zero is neither positive nor negative.
Two integers that are the same distance from the origin in opposite directions are called opposites.
We don't have to include a positive sign (+) when we write positive numbers. However, we do have to include the negative sign (-) when we write negative numbers.
Zero is called the origin and it is neither negative nor positive.

Since opposites are the same distance from the origin, they have the same absolute value.
For example, the absolute value of "negative 10" is ten, and the absolute value of "positive 10" is also 10.
The absolute value of zero is zero.

0 is neither positive nor negative!
  • -1
As zero is a neutral number so it can't be positive or negative integer
