Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because I plugged 6 and 0 back into the problem and they weren't equal to 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok @makaylarrrrrr you are right to say no solution because the absolute value of something would leave you to either a positive or 0 answer but plugging in any value of x here: x+3 would leave you to a positive or 0 answer so there cannot possibly be a solution to x+3=3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And @MilenaSaeger plugging in your answers as @makaylarrrrrr did you will see they do not work what did you say 6 and 0 the equation was x+32=5 plug in 6 we get: 6+32 92 92 7 but 7 is not 5 so x=6 will definitely not work you also said 0 would work but when we replace x with 0 we get 0+32 32 32 1 but 1 is not 5 so x=0 will definitely not work and again of some number will either be positive or zero (and never negative)
