    always get the absolute value part alone on 1 side first |9-8x| = (2x+3)/9 then split it into 2 cases, pos and neg --> 9-8x = (2x+3)/9 and --> 9-8x = -(2x+3)/9 solve each equation for x

    |9-8x| -> (9-8x) and (8x-9) 9 (9 - 8x) = 2x + 3 81 - 72x = 2x + 3 78 = 74x x = 78/74 = 39/37 9 (8x - 9) = 2x + 3 72x - 81 = 2x + 3 70x = 84 x = 84/70 = 6/5
