There are 3 or 1 possible negative roots

2. anonymous

saifooooooooooo! you need a nap

3. saifoo.khan

=(

4. saifoo.khan

DANG!

5. anonymous

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

6. saifoo.khan

second is -3/2

7. anonymous

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

8. anonymous

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

9. anonymous

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
