to know about the symbol ‘a’, that means the ‘absolute’, or positive,
value of the number a. So, for example, 5 = 5 = 5. A
How many pairs of integer values of x and y can you find to satisfy both
these equations simultaneously ?:
x + y = 3
and
x  y = 3 B And these two ?
x + y = 4
and
x  y = 8 C What difference now ?
x + y = 8
and
x  y = 4
