# Zero Quest

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet is designed to challenge students with absolute value equations where the expression inside the absolute value is set to zero. The problems presented range from basic to more complex equations, involving various algebraic expressions that students must simplify and solve. Each problem requires students to understand that for the absolute value equation to equal zero, the expression within the absolute value bars must also equal zero, leading them to find the precise value of the variable that satisfies this condition. This worksheet offers focused practice on solving these specific types of equations, reinforcing the concept that absolute value reflects the distance from zero.

The primary goal of this worksheet is to teach students how to approach and solve absolute value equations that are set equal to zero, emphasizing the need to isolate and simplify the expression within the absolute value bars. It helps students recognize that the solution to such equations is always the value that makes the expression inside the absolute value zero, reinforcing the idea that absolute value measures distance. Through these exercises, students improve their ability to work through more complex algebraic manipulations and apply their understanding of absolute value in practical situations. Ultimately, this worksheet prepares students for more advanced algebraic topics by solidifying their grasp of how absolute value equations behave when set to zero.
