## Intermediate Algebra (12th Edition)

We are given the statement $|-5|\geq-|-5|$. We know that $|-5|=5$. Therefore, the statement is equivalent to $5\geq-5$, which states that 5 has a value that is greater than or equal to -5. Since, 5 is to the right of -5 on the number line, we know that it has a greater value than -5. This statement is true.
