Thanks, Kerry.Answer by Fombitz(13828)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Think about absolute value problems as two separate problems. The first is the positive solution. The second is the negative solution. The absolute value of x is x when x>0 and -x when x<0. Hence the two solutions. First let's do the positive solution. Next, let's do the negative solution. Note the change in sign direction after division by negative number. That is the solution set. and
