93 L12 §2.8 Absolute Value Equations & Inequa l i t ie s Recall : 1. x is the distance on a number line from x to 0. 2. 0 x > if 0 x and 0 x = if and only if 0 x = . 3. xx =− . 4. The algebraic definition: if 0 if 0 x = < . Solving equations of the form x a = Trivial case . Example: 5 x = − 0 a < So lu t ion se t : Nontrivial cases: 1. 0 a = 0 x = 0 x = 2. 0 a > x a = xa = or Important: To use the above results, we must isolate the absolute value.
