The rule for rewriting an absolute value equation without absolute value bars can be extended to equations with two sets of absolute value bars:
If u and v represent algebraic expressions, then |u| = |v| is equivalent to u = v or u = - v. Use this to solve the equations in Exercises 77–84.
|3x - 1| = |x + 5|
