__Question:__**How do I Make a Negative Number Positive in Game Maker?**

__Answer:__In an earlier question, we talked about how to make positive numbers negative. Well how do you make a negative number positive? Do the same thing as before!

Let's say we want to make a variable positive. Our variable is called myDirection and it equals -5:

myDirection=-5; |

Any number multiplied by 1 gives you the same number, and multiplying a negative number by a negative number gives you a positive number! So here's the code:

myDirection=myDirection*-1; |

This code multiplies the value of myDirection by -1, and then puts the answer back in the myDirection variable. Now myDirection is positive! Nice!
