1.2_Absolute_Value_Function.notebook 1 1.2 The Absolute Value Function Recall f(x) = x absolute value f cn , can be written as f(x)= { x, x 0 -x, x 0 i.e. f(3) = 3 f(‐5) = 5 f( 2n‐4) = { 2n‐4, n 2 4‐2n, n < 2 every output is positive Graph: y = x, x 0 y = -x, x 0 Example 1 Equations with absolute value: Solve for x: a) x = 3 b) x + 2 = 1
