Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First because 3x  4  8 = 6 we know that 3x  4 = 14  (*) Now if 3x  4 > 0, then 3x  4 = 3x  4, hence in that case the equation (*) implies 3x  4 = 14  (1) On the other hand, if 3x  4 < 0, then 3x  4 = (3x4) = 3x + 4, and equation (*) implies 3x + 4 = 14  (2) So what you need to do now is solve each of the equations, (1) and (2)
