# How do you solve  |x| > 12?

Aug 3, 2018

$x < - 12 \text{ or } x > 12$
$\text{note that } | - 13 | = | 13 | = 13 > 12$
$\text{So any value of x less than negative 12 or greater than 12}$
$\text{is the solution}$
$x \in \left(- \infty , - 12\right) \cup \left(12 , \infty\right) \text{ is the solution}$
