Absolute Value If ABSOLUTE VALUE represents the distance a number is from zero, means all x values that are 3 units from zero. If given, what are some values that make this true? What does mean? ALL x VALUES LESS THAN 3 UNITS FROM 0.

If given, what are some values that make this true? What does mean? ALL x VALUES GREATER THAN 3 UNITS FROM 0.

Solving and Absolute Value Inequalities: To solve and inequality in the form | A | 0, solve the compound inequality: Graph: For Graph:

Solving and Absolute Value Inequalities: To solve and inequality in the form | A | > b where A is a variable expression and b > 0, solve the compound inequality: Graph: For Graph:

In General with Absolute Value Inequalities: LESS THAN means “WITHIN” GREATER(GREAT “OR”) THAN means EITHER/OR

Examples: Solve and Graph the following inequalities: 1)

2)

3)
