# Absolute difference

The absolute difference of two real numbers and is given by , the absolute value of their difference. It describes the distance on the real line between the points corresponding to and . It is a special case of the Lp distance for all and is the standard metric used for both the set of rational numbers and their completion, the set of real numbers . As with any metric, the metric properties hold: * , since absolute value is always non-negative. * if and only if . * (symmetry or commutativity). * (triangle inequality); in the case of the absolute difference, equality holds if and only if or . By contrast, simple subtraction is not non-negative or commutative, but it does obey the second and fourth properties above, since if and only if , and . The absolute difference is used to define other quantities including the relative difference, the L1 norm used in taxicab geometry, and graceful labelings in graph theory. When it is desirable to avoid the absolute value function – for example because it is expensive to compute, or because its derivative is not continuous – it can sometimes be eliminated by the identity if and only if . This follows since and squaring is monotonic on the nonnegative reals. (Wikipedia).

Absolute versus relative measurements in geometry | Rational Geometry Math Foundations 134

In science and ordinary life, the distinction between absolute and relative measurements is very useful. It turns out that in mathematics this is also an important distinction. We must be prepared that some aspects of mathematics are more naturally measured relatively, rather than absolute

Proof: Reverse Triangle Inequality Theorem | Real Analysis

The reverse triangle inequality tells us how the absolute value of the difference of two real numbers relates to the absolute value of the difference of their absolute values. In particular, |x-y| is greater than or equal to | |x| - |y| |. We'll prove this result in today's lesson. We'll n
