1 Absolute Value & Systems of Inequalities Absolute Value Equations Absolute Value Inequalities Linear Inequalities

2 Absolute Value Equations and Inequalities  Distance from zero to n on a real number line.  |x| = 4 means, ‘ what number, x, are 4 units from zero on the number line.’

3 Absolute Value Equations |u| = n  If n is positive then u = n or u = -n  Example: |x| = 2 ; x = 2 or x = -2  However, if n is negative then the equation has no real solution.

4 Practice Solve the equation a)|x + 7| = 4 b)2|x - 5| + 6 = 20 c)|m - 4| + 12 = 8

5 Application Estella is driving from Savannah, Georgia to Washington D.C. Along the way, she will pass through Richmond VA. Estella’s distance from Richmond can be modeled by the function: D(t) = |460 – 60t|  Find the time when Estella will be 40 miles from Richmond.

6 Absolute Value Inequalities Inequality | x | < 5, means all values of x that are less than 5 units from zero on the number line.

7 Absolute Value Inequality with <, <  Isolate absolute value inequality on one side  Rewrite as a compound inequality |u| < n -n < u < n

8 Absolute Value Inequality Solve the inequalities. Give the solution as an inequality and graph the solution set on a number line. a)|x - 4| < 6 b)|x + 3| + 8 < 10

9 Absolute Value Inequality >, > ‘Or’ Represents numbers further from zero |x | > 5

10 Absolute Value Inequality A person with high or low blood pressure will have a diastolic pressure (second number) that satisfies the inequality |D - 75| > 15 Where D is a person’s diastolic pressure in millimeters of mercury (mmHg). What is the high and low diastolic pressure?

11 Systems of Linear Inequalities Two or more constraints on a give situation. y > 2 x – 3  Graph  Solution  What does the solution mean?

12 Finding Inequalities from a graph
