Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Let me start with the definition: absolute value: The positive number of any pair of opposite nonzero real numbers is the absolute value of each number in the pair.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2This definition is stating that the absolute value is a POSITIVE number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Can you solve the equation $$9x +9 =18$$

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Similarly we use the same argument for the opposite of 18 or 18....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0With 9x + 9 = 18, the "x" stands for 3, right? :o

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2does 9(3) + 9 =?= 18

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So... The answer is 18x?

skullpatrol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2No, try and solve for x in $$9x + 9 = 18$$

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Concentrate on ONLY solving the equation. Subtract 9 from both sides, then divide both sides by 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What you have to do Arianna is get X by itself 9x + 9=18 To get this by itself you have to remove things from around the x. 9x + 9 = 18 What ever you do to the left side of the = sign you have to do to the right let em show you 9x + 9 = 18  9  9  9x + 0= 9 /9 /9 /=divide 1x + 0 = 1  We read this as x = 1 so the answer is x = 1 now plug 1 into x 9(1) + 9 = 19 9 + 9 = 18 18=18 this is true

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.09x+9=18 and 9x+9=18 this is taken from definition of the absolute value.

AriannaA

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So 18=18 is the answer? I'm sorry if I'm being difficult.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you have to solve for x because x is the only thing we do not know here.
