Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@CLester13 So, do you have a better way to say, "f(x  2) = f(x + 2)"?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or, something = something or something = something Which leaves JUST ONE POSSIBILITY: x  2 is the opposite of x + 2, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, answer this thing when you come online: How do you represent this sentence  "the opposite of x + 2"?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I would square both sides of x2=x+2 so I wouldn't need to worry about the absolute value. So perhaps you know how to solve this: \[(x2)^2=(x+2)^2\] Hint: Expand both sides. You will be in for a real treat.
