begin by isolating the absolute value...

Whatever in the absolute value can be negative or positive
|x| = 3 means x can equal 3 or -3

So what does that tell you about this equation?

@trenvilla did you get the answer?

no

ok
9(9 – 8x) = 2x + 3

Distribute

ok so (81+-72)=2x+3

is that right

81-72x=2x+3 (Personally, I hate writing +-)

So combine like terms... if I were you I would keep my 'x' positive.

ok
so 84-74

No.

81-72x=2x+3
lets look at our 'x' values first.

Is 72 a negative or a positive?

pos

No, in this equation it has a minus sign in front of it right?

So in this case it is negative.

o ok

So how can we combine -72x and the positive 2x to keep the answer POSITIVE?

i dont no how

wont u have to make it -70

No, you can either make this positive 74 OR -74

ok

Okay, so lets add -72x to the positive 2x

81 = 74x + 3

ok

Can you simplify this by combing the 81 and 3?

yes

So what do you get?

84=74x

No.

Which would keep your 'x' on one side and the regular number on the other side

o ya
so 78+74x

78 = 74x

ya i ment =

then you divide and you get \[\frac{ 78 }{ 74}\]

simplify that and what do you get?

1.05'

ia thtat right

Simplify as a fraction

That is right as a decimal but you would ideally simplify to a fraction

1 4 over 74

Okay we have 78/74

So if I were you I would divide the numerator by 2 then the denominator by 2

39/37

That is your answer

thank you for all your help
