Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well, you can think of it as this: The absolute value of 65x is 3x7. In other words, 65x is exactly 3x7 away from zero. So 65x is 3x7 away from zero, in EITHER direction...meaning: 65x can be either 3x7 or (3x7) :) Come up with two equations based on this information. Then you can solve it! :D
