Enter Equation or Inequality
Solve for
y
in the equation |-4y| = -8
Since this is an absolute value equation, we need to setup two equations
-4y = -8
-4y = 8
Solve Equation 1 → -4y = -8
Divide each side of absolute value equation 1 by -4
-4y
-4
=
-8
-4
Solution to absolute value equation 1 is
y = 2
Solve Equation 2 → -4y = 8
Divide each side of absolute value equation 2 by -4
-4y
-4
=
8
-4
Solution to absolute value equation 2 is
y = -2
