    Here are some more sample simplifications: don't have to be correct.
    • Simplify | -8 |.
    | -8 | = 8 Copyright © Elizabeth Stapel 2000-2011 All Rights Reserved
    • Simplify | 0 - 6 |.

    | 0 - 6 | = | -6 | = 6
    • Simplify | 5 - 2 |.
    | 5 - 2 | = | 3 | = 3
    • Simplify | 2 - 5 |.
    | 2 - 5 | = | -3 | = 3
    • Simplify | 0(-4) |.
    | 0(-4) | = | 0 | = 0
    • Simplify | 2 + 3(-4) |.
    | 2 + 3(-4) | = | 2 - 12 | = | -10 | = 10
    • Simplify -| -4 |.
    -| -4| = -(4) = -4
    • Simplify -| (-2)^2 |.
    -| (-2)^2 | = -| 4 | = -4
    • Simplify -| -2 |2
    -| -2 |^2 = -(2)2 = -(4) = -4
    • Simplify (-| -2 |)^2.
    (-| -2 |)^2 = (-(2))^2 = (-2)^2 = 4

    Section 2.4
    1.
    Line parallel to y = 5x and passing through (4,-3):
    y - (-3) = 5 (x-4)
    => y+3 = 5(x-4) (point and slope form)
    or
    =>y = 5x - 23 (intercept and slope form)

    2. Line parallel to y = -3x + 1, and ...
