5. satellite73 Group Title

if x > 3 this is $x-3+x-6=0$ $2x=9$ $x=\frac{9}{2}$ that is one answer

6. saifoo.khan Group Title

second is -3/2

7. satellite73 Group Title

if x <0 this is $-x+3-x-6=0$ $-2x=3$ $x=-\frac{3}{2}$

8. satellite73 Group Title

and if 0 < x < 3 this is $-x+3+x-6=0$ or $-3=0$ so there is no solution on that intervals

9. satellite73 Group Title

steps clear or not? you need to break up the absolute value into intervals where it is positive and negative. then get rid of absolute value signs and solve the linear equation
