Objective: To solve equations with an absolute value in them by hand & using the calculator Essential Question: How does solving an absolute value equation differ from other equations?

Absolute Value EquationsObjective: Solve equations with an absolute value in them; identify extraneous solutions

Essential Question: How do absolute value bars affect the possible solutions of an equation?

I am 3 miles from my house

|B| = 3B = 3 or B = -3ReviewAbsolute Value: the distance a number is from zero (always positive)

Ex 1) |7| =

Ex 2) |-5| =

Ex 3) 5|2 4| + 2 =Consider the following problem|x + 4| = 7Solving Absolute Value EquationsStep 1: Get bars alone on one side

Step 2: Split up into a positive & negative equation (drop the bars)

Step 3: Solve both equations

Step 4: Check your solution!!! *One of them might be extraneousProblem #13|x + 2| - 7 = 14

3|x + 2| = 21

|x + 2| = 7|x + 2| = 7 x + 2 = 7 x + 2 = -7 x = 5 or x = -9Problem #2|3x + 2| = 4x + 53x + 2 = 4x + 53x + 2 = -4x 5 3x + 2 = 4x + 53x + 2 = -4x 5 Extraneous Solutions solution that you find that is NOT actually a solution

Its a FAKE! |3x + 2| = 4x + 5Problem #3|x 4| + 7 = 2

|x 4| = -5

NO SOLUTION

NO SOLUTIONIf the equivalent value is negative BEFORE YOU DROP THE BARS, there is no solutionProblem #4|x 4| < 10

x 4 < 10x 4 > -10
