# Chapter 11 - Additional Topics - 11.1 - Equations and Inequalities Involving Absolute Value - Problem Set 11.1 - Page 475: 38

To solve an absolute value problem, we must consider both the case where the number that the absolute value is set equal to is positive and the case where it is negative. Recall, if we are solving an inequality, we must flip the inequality sign when we change the sign.
