# Module 9

### Flash cards for studying Module 9 (Absolute Value Equations and Inequalities)

| x |= a If a is a positive number, | x |= a is equivalent to x = a, or x = -a. This can still be applied if the equation in the absolute value brackets is more complicated, such as | x + 10|= 5.
| x |= 5 Solve | x |= 5. | x |= 5 is equivalent to x = 5 and x = -5. Substitute each into the original equation. | x |= 5 | x |= 5 | 5 |= 5 | -5 |= 5 5 = 5; True 5 = 5; True Solution set: {5, -5}
4| x | + 50 = 46 4| x |+ 50 = 46 4| x |= -4 (Subtract 50) | x |= -1 (Divide by 4) Since the answer is negative, there is no solution.
| 3x-5 |= | 1-3x | 3x-5 = 1-3x 3x-5 = -(1-3x) 6x-5 = 1 3x = 4-3x 6x = 6 0 = 4 x = 1 Solution set is {1} since 0=4 is a false statement.
| 6+3a |-20 = -2 | 6+3a |-20 = -2 6+3a = 18 6+3a = -18 3a = 12 3a = 24 a = 4 a = -8 Solution set is {-8, 4}
| x | < a If a is positive, | x | < a is equivalent to -a < | x | < a. This also applies to the sign ≤
| x | ≤ 4 Refers to all numbers whose distance from 0 is less than or equal to 4. Solution set is [-4, 4]
| x-5 | < 7 | x-5 | < 7 x-5 < 7 x-5 > 7 x < 12 x > -2 Solution set is (-2, 12)
| 6x+3 |+3 < 24 | 6x+3 |+3 < 24 -21 < 6x + 3 < 21 (Subtract 3 from both sides and use the formula -a < | x | < a to set this inequality up.) -24 < 6x < 18 (Subtract 3 to get x alone.) -4 < x <3 (Divide by 6.) Solution is (-4, 3)
15 + | x | ≤ 8 15 + | x | ≤ 8 x ≤ -7 The inequality states that the answer should be less than or equal to 7 (less than 0, which cannot be the answer of an absolute value).

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
