Absolute Value Formula

Can anyone tell me if there's any formula for calculating |a+b| (for All a & b) or any such expression?
I went through a similar post of Janefairfax or somebody where absolute values formulas were there for some programming purposes...

Don't know where to find that post..
Plz help me!

If two or more thoughts intersect, there has to be a point!

Re: Absolute Value Formula

If you're not using this for programming, then


"In the real world, this would be a problem.  But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist.  So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
