Given:
$\left[-16,+16\right]$ is given as a pair of signed numbers.
Calculation:
$=-6,+6$
The absolute value of -16 is 16.
The absolute value of +16 is 16.
Both absolute values (smallerand larger) are same i.e. 16.
Now, the subtraction of smaller absolute value from the larger absolute value is
$=16-16=0$
Hence, the subtraction of smaller absolute value from the larger absolute value is 0.
