Do you agree with the following statement? To solve an absolute-value equation, you always need to solve two equations. Why or why not?

Answer:

No, for there are at least two exceptions: when the absolute value = 0, and when it equals a negative number. When it equals 0, there is only one possible solution, and when it equals a negative there are NO solutions.
