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.
