# Simplify algebra mod problems

Here are some more sample simplifications: don't have to be correct.

• Simplify | -8 |.

| 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

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 ...
