    \[\pm (v-5) = 4\] v - 5 = 4 v = 9 - v + 5 = 4 v = 1

    you have to get the numbers in the absolute value sign alone, you would do that by dividing 4 by 16, so then you'll have |v - 5| = 4 Now what's NOT in the absolute value sign, you will turn into negative and positive to get your two soulitons v -5= -4 add 5 v = 1 v-5=4 add 5 v=9
