# Advanced Absolute Value Operations Worksheets

How to Approach Math Problems That Include Absolute Value - Most students are unfamiliar with the concept of absolute value. However, learning them is very easy, and the concepts are easy to comprehend. There are a few things that you need to keep in mind.

|a| = 3 if and only a = ±3

|a + b| = 3 if and only if a + b = 3 or a + b = -3.

Step 1) is to isolate the absolute value expression. Step 2) is to set the quantity aside the absolute value notation equal to the – and + the quantity on the other side of the equation. Step 3) involves solving the unknown variables for both the equation. Step 4) involves checking your answer both graphically and analytically.
These worksheets and lessons help students learn how to evaluate absolute value in complex operations settings.
