LINR 2 | Lesson 1 | Practice Absolute Value Solutions

1.  \(|2x-7| + 3 = 8\)

\(|2x-7| = 5\)

\(2x-7 = 5\) or \(2x-7 = -5\) ; \(x = 6\) or \(x = 1\)

2.  \(|3x+ 2|-2 = 12\)

\(|3x+2| = 14\)

\(3x+2 = 14\) or \(3x+2 = -14\); \(x = 4\) or \(x = \dfrac{-16}{3}\)

3.  \(2-|x+3| = -7\)

\(-|x+3| = -9\) or \(|x+3| = 9\) ; \(x = 6\) or \(x = -12\)

4.  \(1-|3x-2| = 10\)

\(-|3x-2| = 9\) or \(|3x-2|  = -9|\);  no solution
