Where p is real numbers.
The absolute value of x, denoted |x|, is defined as follows,
When x is nonnegative, the absolute value of x is x and when x is negative, the absolute value of x is the opposite of x.
Using the property of Absolute value,
The absolute value of a product is the product of the absolute values.
Apply the property of absolute value |-p|=|p|,
Hence, the absolute value of |3y| is 3|y|.
