Absolute Value Inequalities: Basic

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

This packet helps students practice how to solve absolute value inequalities.  Each problem asks the student to solve for the variable and graph the variable.  Asking students to graph the answers to these types of problems on a number line is common on Algebra I curriculum and it also helps students to visualize the two different (sometimes converging and sometimes diverging) answers to these types of inequatlies.

Each page starts with easier problems that get more difficult as students work through the packet. After doing all 39 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|<5  $


$|2x+5|<-16 $


Practice problems require knowledge of absolute value and how to solve multi-step equations. View the first page of the packet above.
