2.6 Absolute Value

Goals

SWBAT solve inequalities involving absolute value.

Definitions The of a,

denoted , is the distance that a is from zero on a number line.

The absolute value of a number is always.

So, in other words, and . That

said, we must consider both the negative and positive versions of a when solving absolute value equations and inequalities.

Solving Absolute Value Inequalities 1. Get the absolute value by itself, making

sure to remember that if you or by a negative

you flip the sign! 2. Set up two equality problems, one for the

positive, one for the negative, and solve. 3. Plot your solution(s) on a number line. Use

an dot for < or >, and a

dot for or 4. Test the intervals on your number line to

5. Write a compound inequality for your solution. (an and or an or)
