**Solving Absolute Value Equations**

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. 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 Richter Scale 10 E

**Solving Absolute Value Equations**

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**

For any real number a, if a is positive or zero, the absolute value of a is a. For any real number a, if a is negative, the absolute value of a is a. distance from zero = a distance from zero = a -a a For any real number a, and
