3 Seismologists use the Richter scale to express the Magnitudes of earthquakes. This scale ranges from 1 to 10, 10 being the highest. The uncertainty in the estimate of a magnitude E is about Plus or minus 0.3 unit. Richter Scale 0 10 E This means that an earthquake with a magnitude estimated at 6.1 might actually have a magnitude as low as 5.8 or as high as 6.4. These extremes can be described by the absolute value equation

4 The absolute value of a number is its distance from zero on the number line. Since distance is nonnegative (positive), the absolute value of a number is always nonnegative. Solving Absolute Value Equations

5 The absolute value of a number is its distance from zero on the number line. Since distance is nonnegative (positive), the absolute value of a number is always nonnegative. The symbol is used to represent the absolute value of a number x. Solving Absolute Value Equations

6 Absolute Value For any real number a,if a is positive or zero,the absolute value of a is a. 0 a distance from zero = a distance from zero = a For any real number a,if a is negative,the absolute value of a is a. -a For any real number a, and Solving Absolute Value Equations
