    \[ 2x^2-8<0 \\ 2x^2<8 \\ x^2<4 \\ \sqrt{x^2}<\sqrt{4} \]Now it is important to remember that \(\sqrt{\quad}\) mean the "positive square root" (not the negative one) and that \(\sqrt{a^2}\) is the definition of of the absolute value.\[ |x| < 2 \]

    To solve absolute value equations, we have to split it up into two cases. Case 1: Assume \(x\) (the thing in the absolute value) is positive. \[ |x| < 2 \\ x<2 \] That was easy. Case 2: Assume \(x\) is negative: \[ |x| < 2 \\ -x < 2 \\ x > -2 \]Remember that if \(x\) is negative, then \(|x| =-x\) because the absolute value bars had to flip the sign to make \(x\) positive. Also remember that when you multiply/divide both sides of an inequality by a negative number, the equality flips. Hence \(<\) became \(>\) in this instance.

    Notation allows us to conveniently combine the expressions \(x < 2\) and \(x > -2\) into \(-2 < x < 2\). Does this help, @cdelomas ?

    One thing worthy of committing to memory is that: \[ |x| < a \implies -a < x < a \\ |x| > a \implies x < -a,\quad x > a \]

    so for equation b is it squareroot x2>squareroot 4.
