Absolute Value Inequalities: Extra Terms

Common Core Grade Level:
Packet includes:
30 practice problems and an answer key.

This packet helps students practice how to solve absolute value inequalities. Each page starts with easier problems that get more difficult as students work through the packet.  The packet asks students to both solve and graph these absolute value equations on a number line.  Having to graph the answers to these types of problems is typical in Algebra I curriculum and it also helps students to visualize the two (sometimes converging, sometimes diverging) answers to absolute value inequalities

After doing all 30 problems, students should be more comfortable doing these problems and have a clear understanding of how to solve them. 

Sample Problem(s)

Solve for x.  


$|x+5|+6<9  $


$2|2x+15|+9<3 $


Practice problems require knowledge of absolute value and how to solve multistep equations. See the first page of the packet above.
