Unformatted text preview:  x  = C has no solution (since absolute values can not be negative) (no solution!) If C = 0 , then the solution of  x  = 0 is x = 0. (1 solution!) If the absolute value equation is more complicated than C x = , isolate the absolute value first and then solve it. Examples: 1. Solve  x  = 8 2 2. Solve 8 4 2 =x 3. Solve 14 6 2 5 = +x 4. Solve 18 6 4 2 2 = + + x 5. Solve 2= x . 6. Solve 5 4 2=x 7. Solve 4 5 1 2 = +x 8. Solve 5 5 2 = + x...
