how do you solve 5|6-5x|=15x-35?
|dw:1346701618091:dw|
Best to start by dividing both sides by 5 to isolate the abs.val.
Yeah I got down to |6-5x|=3x-7 ur I just got confused now @cliffSedge
Ok, now that you have |6-5x| = 3x-7, do you understand what | | means?
@cathyangs Yeah I do, I trie making the problems opposite to go along with it he original and it looks weird.
Sorry I'm on my phone haha a lot of spelling mistakes!
Well, you can think of it as this: The absolute value of 6-5x is 3x-7. In other words, 6-5x is exactly 3x-7 away from zero. So 6-5x is 3x-7 away from zero, in EITHER direction...meaning: 6-5x can be either 3x-7 or -(3x-7) :) Come up with two equations based on this information. Then you can solve it! :D
