Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, first you figure out the absolute values. 10 is the same thing as 10. That goes for 2 as well, which is 2. You plug those values back into the equation and you get the following 4(10)3(2)=? 4(10)=40 and 3(2) =6 Plug those in again, and you get 406=34

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, more like 4. Sorry, trying to be helpful. When you have an absolute value equation, such as x, the x equals both x and +x. Since your equation is 41032 you actually have 4 possible answers. 1. 4(10)3(2)=34 2. 4(10)3(2)=34 3. 4(10)3(2)=46 4. 4(10)3(2)=46 Your answers are + 46 and +34. That translates into plus or minus 46 and plus or minus 34
