- to illustrate a simplified process for solving absolute value inequalities
Some texts approach absolute value inequalities by examining the several logical cases that arise from the absolute value statement which can be a confusing process for the beginning student. This approach uses a bit more of a graphical approach and treats the problems visually. The computations are easy and the final solution is obtained rather quickly.

Here is a simplified approach to figuring out the intervals that solve an absolute value inequality. It is assumed that you already understand the basic concept of absolute value and know how to solve absolute value equations. Please leave questions in the Q&A area.
