False

Work Step by Step

RECALL: The absolute value of a number is the number's distance from 0 on a number line. This means that the value of the absolute value of a number is never negative since distance cannot be negative. This also means that the absolute value of a number can be equal to zero (this happens when the number is zero itself). Therefore, the given statement is false.
