Given:
$\left[-17,+9\right]$ 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
$=17-9=8$
Hence, the subtraction of smaller absolute value from the larger absolute value is 8.
