This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

Here are some more sample simplifications: don't have to be correct.
• Simplify | -8 |.
• 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 ...
