Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the absolute value of x is 6. so x could be either 6 or 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[x3=5\] \[x3=5\] \[x3=5\] \[x3=5 , x=8\] \[x3=5, x=2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there are two. do you have one you would like to do?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, the x3 = 5 one.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the problem is, I don't quite remember how to do the process. Could one help.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just remember when you remove the absolute value signs you have to write two separate equations

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is clear yes? because if i know \[x=78\] then x could be 78 but it could also be 78

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, I just looked that up, and it made sense. Now what if there's two variables, like x3 = 5, would the answer be, "2 or 2" ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because if i know x3=5 then what i know is that either x3=5 or x3=5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the solution to the first one is x = 8, not x = 2. the solution to the second one IS x=2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. I kind of see what you did... Could you give me another one amongst those lines, so I can try it?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The answer to the first one should be 4, and the second one, being (x+3 = 7) would be 10?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes . got it. write to equations, solve each individually

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i meant write TWO equations

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, for sure! (: It's just I'm a bit slow at first, but once I get it, I beast through all of them, lol. Btw, are there any equations like that, with THREE variables?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not usually. do you have one?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, I just wanted to know so I could be prepared in case I get one of those.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you could have something like this: x+2=2x5

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and how would you solve that?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in which case you still have to write two equations but you have to be very very careful

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you would write two equations. one would be: x+2=2x5

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the other would be: x+2=(2x5)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which of course means x+2=2x+5

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0be careful when you take the negative to remember to put it in parentheses

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright, and so from there, what step is next?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just solve like any linear equation. \[x+2=2x5\] \[2+5=2xx\] \[7=x\]

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or \[x+2=(2x5)\] \[x+2=2x+5\] \[x+2x=52\] \[3x=3\] \[x=1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Interesting. Ok, anyways, sorry for delaying your transformation, but could you give me some heads up on solving prequalities?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know, the weird lady put one of the subjects we need to study, under "Solving prequaltities and graphing solution." Any ideas?
