Answer

-2.7

Work Step by Step

The absolute value of x, written by the form $|x|$, is the distance between x and 0 on the number line. It is equal to: x if $x\geq0$ -x if $x\lt0 $ Since $2.7\geq0$, $|2.7|=2.7$ Since the negative sign is outside of the absolute value sign, this problem asks us to find the opposite of the absolute value of 2.7. $|2.7|=2.7, so -|2.7|=-2.7$
