**SOLVING EQUATIONS CONTAINING ABSOLUTE VALUE(S)**

- Step 1: Isolate the absolute value expression.
- Step2: Set the quantity inside the absolute value notation equal to + and - the quantity on the other side of the equation.
- Step 3: Solve for the unknown in both equations.
- Step 4: Check your answer analytically or graphically.

Also know, how do you find the absolute value?

**Absolute value**describes the distance of a number on the number line from 0 without considering which direction from zero the number lies. The

**absolute value**of a number is never negative. The

**absolute value**of 2 + 7 is 5.

What is the absolute value equation?

When we take the

**absolute value**of a number, we always end up with a positive number (or zero). Whether the input was positive or negative (or zero), the output is always positive (or zero). For instance, |How do you type absolute value on a computer?
