Given:
[17,+9] is given as a pair of signed numbers.
Calculation:
=17,+9
The absolute value of -17 is 17.
The absolute value of +9 is 9.
The smaller absolute value is 9 and the larger absolute value 17.
Now, the subtraction of smaller absolute value from the larger absolute value is
=179=8
Hence, the subtraction of smaller absolute value from the larger absolute value is 8.
