RECALL:
Absolute value is defined as:
$|x| =x$ if $x \ge 0$
$|x| = -x$ if $x \lt 0$
Note that:
(1) The absolute value of a positive number is positive.
(2) The absolute value of 0 is 0.
(3) The absolute value of a negative number is positive.
Thus, for any real number $x$,
$|x| \ge 0$
The given statement is true.
