Figure out the absolute value for #'s 1-5 .
To see if you got them all right the sum of the answers for #'s 1-5 is |-81|

1.) |-23+37|
2.) |21-44|
3.) |16+4|-|32|
4.) |16+4|-|-32|
5.) 22-|-10|+|56|

Somehow i keep getting a number higher than |-81|

#3 and #4 have answers that are negative so make sure that you are not taking the absolute value of the answers of them.
