Normally, when we want to solve for

Well, the absolute value bars make the value inside of them positive. So,

Based on that fact,

**Situation 1**

*subtract #19# on both sides*

**Situation 2**

*divide by #-1# on both sides*

Notice, the sign (

#<=# ) changed. Whenever we divide by a negative number, the sign switches

*subtract by #19# on both sides*

So, our two values are

graph{abs(x+19)-1}
