Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0example: abs(x)=6 what two values for x will give you distance 6 do you know?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0abs(x)=6 has two solutions x=6 and x=6 just like we found 2 solutions above but these problems could get trickier along the way and sometimes it will fail to have two solutions so you should begin checking to get in the practice of doing so

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so let's check the above one: we got x=0 and x=12 lets see if x=0 works plug it into the original equation abs(0+6)4=2 abs(6)4=2 64=2 2=2 so we got the samething on both sides so x=0 checks out how about x=12 abs(12+6)4=2 abs(6)4=2 64=2 2=2 so x=12 checks out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Really it's simply a matter of: \[x+6  4 = 2 \implies x+6 =6 \]\[\implies x + 6 = 6 \text{ and } x+ 6 = 6\] \[\implies x = 12 \text{ and } x = 0\] are solutions.
