1 Math 1300 Section 1.8 Solving Absolute Value Equations: To solve and equation involving absolute values, use the following property: If C is positive, then | x | = C is equivalent to x = ± C . Special cases for | x | = C : Case 1: If C is negative then the equation | x | = C has no solution since absolute values cannot be negative. Case 2: The solution of the equation
