# Value Quest

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet is designed to help students practice solving absolute value equations, where they must determine the solutions that satisfy the conditions set by the absolute value expressions. The problems range from basic equations involving single absolute value terms to more complex scenarios where multiple terms and operations are present. Each equation challenges students to consider both the positive and negative possibilities for the variable, emphasizing the unique nature of absolute value in algebra. This worksheet provides a thorough practice session aimed at reinforcing students’ skills in solving absolute value equations across various levels of difficulty.

The goal of this worksheet is to teach students how to systematically solve absolute value equations by understanding and applying the concept that absolute value represents distance from zero. It encourages students to think critically about how to set up and solve the two possible cases that arise from an absolute value equation – one where the expression inside the absolute value is positive and one where it is negative. Through these exercises, students gain a stronger grasp of the steps required to isolate the variable and solve for all possible solutions. Ultimately, this worksheet builds students’ confidence in handling absolute value equations, a key skill for tackling more advanced algebraic problems and real-world applications involving distance, deviation, and tolerance.
