    long l1 = 55475693, l2 = -7538911;

    // returns the absolute value of positive long value
    long lAbsValue = StrictMath.abs(l1);
    System.out.println("absolute value of " + l1 + " = " + lAbsValue);    

    // returns the absolute value of negative long value
    lAbsValue = StrictMath.abs(l2);
    System.out.println("absolute value of " + l2 + " = " + lAbsValue);
