**Q: Solve for x:**

**|x² – 2x| = 3**

**Q: Solve the absolute value problem: |x/2 – 1/3| = 1**

**Q: What is -|653 +47|?**

A: First, we do the computation that is inside the absolute value signs: 653 + 47 = 700. So, we get:

-|653 +47| = -|700|

Next, the absolute value signs “turn” the number that is inside of them to a positive (since the 700 inside is already positive, this is no matter)… And, the negative that is out in front just hangs out to get:

-|653 +47| = -|700| = -(700) = -700.
