The absolute value of a real number is defined as its numerical value without regard for sign. So, for example, abs(2) = abs(−2) = 2.
The maximum of two real numbers is defined as the numerically bigger of the two. For example, max(2, −3) = max(2, 2) = 2.
Express:
abs in terms of max
max in terms of abs
