Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x4+7=4 Since 7 does not contain the variable to solve for, move it to the righthand side of the equation by subtracting 7 from both sides. x4=7+4 Add 4 to 7 to get 3. x4=3 Remove the absolute value term. This creates a \ on the righthand side of the equation because x=\x. x4=\(3) Set up the portion of the \ solution. x4=3 Move all terms not containing x to the righthand side of the equation. x=1 Set up the  portion of the \ solution. x4=(3) Multiply 1 by the 3 inside the parentheses. x4=3 Since 4 does not contain the variable to solve for, move it to the righthand side of the equation by adding 4 to both sides. x=4+3 Add 3 to 4 to get 7. x=7 The solution to the equation includes both the positive and negative portions of the solution. x=1,7
