Can you explain how to do absolute value problems

OpenStudy (anonymous):

When solving problems involving absolute values, you must consider the positive and the negative case. For example: \[\left| 3x \right| = 6\] You can re-write this equation to show the positive and negative case: 3x=6 -\left( 3x \right) = 6\] The solutions to this problem are 2 and -2.
