Two Solutions

Absolute Value PropertyIf |x| = a, where x is a variable or an expression and a 0, then x = a or x = a.

SolvingSolving Absolute Value EquationsAbsolute Value Equations

1. Isolate the absolute value so that the equation is in the form |ax + b| = c.

If c < 0, the equation has no solution.

2. Separate the absolute value into two equations, ax + b = c and ax + b = c.

3. Solve both equations.
