Solving Absolute Value Equations
You walk directly east from your house one block. How far from your house are you?
1 block1 block
You walk directly west from your house one block. How far from your house are you?
It didn't matter which direction you walked, you were still 1 block from your house.
This is like absolute value. It is the distance from zero. It doesn't matter whether we are in the positive direction or the negative direction, we just care about how far away we are.

Using Absolute Value in Real LifeUsing Absolute Value in Real LifeThe graph shows the position of a diver relative to sea level. Use absolute value to find the diver’s distance from the surface.
Definition of Absolute Value
The distance from any number to zero on the number line.
The value is always positive. Why?Because absolute value is a distance and
distance is always positive.
Ex. #1
|x| = 6x = 6 or x = -6
Check: |x | = 6 or |x| = 6 | 6 | = 6 | -6 | = 6 6 = 6 6 = 6
To solve an absolute value equation:1. Isolate the absolute value on one side of the equal
sign.2. Case 1: Set the inside of the absolute value equal to
a positive of the other given expression. Solve.3. Case 2 : Set the inside the absolute value equal to
the negative of the other given expression. Solve.
4. Check both solutions.
6x What we are after here are values of x such that they are 6 away from 0.
2 -7 -6 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 1 5 7 3 0 4 6 8
6 and -6 are both 6 units away from 0

Ex. #2
|x + 3| = 7
x + 3 = 7 or x + 3 = -7 Subtract 3 from both sides x = 4 or x = -10
Check: |x + 3| = 7 or |x + 3| = 7 | 4 + 3| = 7 | -10 + 3| = 7 |7| = 7 |-7| = 7
7 = 7 7 = 7
To solve an absolute value equation:1. Isolate the absolute value on one side of the equal

the negative of the other given expression. Solve.
4. Check both solutions.
Ex. #3
|15 – 3x| = 6
15 – 3x = 6 or 15 – 3x = -6 . -3x = -9 -3x = -21 Subtract 15 from both sides.
x = 3 or x = 7 Divide both sides by –3.
Check: |15 – 3x| = 6 |15 – 3x| = 6
|15 – 3(3)| = 6 |15 – 3(7)| = 6 |6| = 6 |–6| = 6 6 = 6 6 = 6
Ex. #4
| x | – 6 = -3 | x | = 3 Add 6 to both sides
x = 3 or x = -3 Check: |x | - 6 = -3 or |x| - 6 = -3 | 3 | = 3 | -3 | = 3 3 = 3 3 = 3
Ex. #5
│-3c│ – 10 = -4 │-3c│ = 6 Add 10 to both sides
-3c = 6 or -3c = -6 Divide both sides by -3
c = -2 or c = 2
Ex. #6
2| x | = -10
| x | = -5
No Solution
Absolute Value and No Solutions
Absolute value is always positive (or zero). An equation such as │x │= -5 or │x – 4│= -6 is never true.
It has NO Solution.
│x │= -5 has no solution
And this is negativeThis is a distance
Ever heard of a negative distance?
OYO (On Your Own)
Solve:
1.) │2x + 4│ = 12
2.) 3│x│= 6
3.) │2x + 4│ – 12 = -12
│2x + 4│ = -12
Solve for c and check:
│3c│ – 45 = -18
