# How Far Away?

Consider the following situations.

Situation 1:You are walking up and down the block in front of your school. You notice that if you are more than 100 yards from the front of school, you lose your internet connection.

Situation 2:You are walking up and down the block in front of your school. You notice that if you are fewer than 50 yards from the front of school, you can hear the band practicing.

How are these two situations the same? How are they different?

Absolute value can be used to describe the distance from the front of school. We will look at ways to solve absolute value inequalities by first examining a graph.
