Work Step by Step

We first consider what is within the absolute value bars. $4-6=-2$. However, because the straight lines that enclose the expression 4-6 (which are called absolute value bars), we know that we are supposed to find the absolute value, meaning that we take whatever number we get and make it positive. Thus, we make negative 2 positive 2. Then we add 5 and 2 to obtain the answer: 7.
