# Absolute Mastery

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet is focused on solving absolute value equations, where students need to consider both the positive and negative solutions that satisfy each equation. The problems presented range from simple absolute value expressions to more complex equations involving multiple steps and variables on both sides of the equation. Students must apply their understanding of how absolute value represents distance from zero and use this concept to find all possible solutions for each problem. This worksheet provides a comprehensive practice session that challenges students to think critically about the nature of absolute value in algebra.

The primary goal of this worksheet is to teach students how to solve absolute value equations by carefully analyzing and breaking down the expressions. It emphasizes the importance of considering both cases—where the expression inside the absolute value is positive and where it is negative—to find all possible solutions. Through these exercises, students develop a deeper understanding of how absolute value equations differ from regular algebraic equations and the additional steps required to solve them. Ultimately, this worksheet helps students build a strong foundation in handling absolute value problems, preparing them for more advanced algebraic concepts and real-world applications where absolute value is essential.
