## kayser 3 years ago Hello please help!! $\left| 3x-(4x-4) \right|=7$

1. Walleye

The ol absolute value probem. do you know how to get rid of the absolute value?

2. kayser

im not very sure, im trying out the problem i just need the final solution to compare it with my result

3. kayser

i have a bunch of these that's why lol

4. Walleye

Remember that the absolute value is the distance so you will have your LHS = 7 or -7

5. Walleye

sorry 7 and -7

6. Walleye

imagine if the value inside was equal to 7 then abs(7) = 7 now imagine if the value inside was equal to -7 then abs(-7) = 7

7. Walleye

8. kayser

haha i know man

9. kayser

thank you very much

10. kayser

wait so the final solution would be (-3.3) ???

11. Walleye

do you mean 3 and -3?

12. kayser

yes the final coordinates

13. Walleye

there are no coordinates. just two solutions for x

14. Walleye

let me do the problem and check the answer

15. kayser

oh yea sorry

16. Walleye

you got it!!! Now just make sure you understand why it is equal to 7 and -7!!! Soon you will see inequalities and you must understand absolute values to succed

17. kayser

ok

18. kayser

ill be posting another one bro

19. Walleye

ok but try to solve it yourself first!
