4x3=5 4x3+3=5+3 4x=8 4x/4=8/4 x=2 There are two x's in this problem because of the  sign. That means absolute value. This is the other x. 4x3=5 4x+3=5 4x+33=53 4x=2 4x/4=2/4 x=1/2

I already know the solution. I just wanted to know how to get it.. and @abbyshorey, the answer you ended up doesn't match with solution that I'm already given?

Oh ya! I forgot that absolute value problems has one negative in it. The work is still good though. Do you understand the steps?
