    Sorry, I'm at work and got interrupted. Hmm. I'm missing something I think. -3 and 5 would be the solution to |4x|=|15+x|, but I don't see that as an answer possibility. Like jdoe said maybe a screen shot would help.

    I'm not seeing a relationship between | 4x | = |15+x| and | 5 | |2y - 1|, but my math skills are a little bit rusty I'm ashamed to admit.

    usually tap the PrinsScrn or PrtSc button after the F12 key on the keyboard, then go to say Paint, and paste there

    The Prt Sc button will copy the screen to the clipboard then paste that into Paint and save the file then attach that file to your response with the attach file button below your response box.

    Well if x=5 then 4x=20 and 15+x=20 therefore 4x=15+x. Likewise if x=-3 then |4x|=|-12| or simply 12 and |15+x|=|12| or simply 12.

    However, if x=3 then 4x=12 and 15+3=18, therefore |4x|≠|15+x|.
