Given:
[16,+16] 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
=1616=0
Hence, the subtraction of smaller absolute value from the larger absolute value is 0.
