Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to solve and graph a two-step absolute value inequality. We start by rewriting the inequality as two separate equations and then solve them individually. After finding our solutions, we plot them on a number line and indicate which values are greater than or less than our solutions using open circles. This lesson provides a clear step-by-step process for solving and graphing absolute value inequalities.

Lesson Description:

Solving and graphing a two step absolute value inequality

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
