Absolute Value Inequalities

Description:

- 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.
