What is the solution of |-1+x| = 5? Do the lines change how to do the problems? I think they have something to do with absolute value.

Not exactly. You would first solve what is in the Absolute Value Lines. Then, if you are left with a negative number, you know it is going to be positive. Not negative. But the answer to this is 6.

so it is just 6 not 6, -4

Correct. The answer is 6.

Oh ok that's funny, because in the lesson it shows 6,-4 as the answer (practice question) I was asking because I wanted to learn how to do the problem...

That would be because they are asking for two answers.
