Try solving this Q yourself. I'll help you out wherever you need it.
I don't think any are.
So you think it's D?
I think so.
Let's see… (Give me 2 mins to solve it and show you)
Clear the absolute-value bars by splitting the equation into its two cases, one for the Positive case and the other for the Negative case. The Absolute Value term is |2x-5| For the Negative case we'll use -(2x-5) For the Positive case we'll use (2x-5)
Is everything clear so far?
Solve the Negative Case -(2x-5) = 5 Multiply -2x+5 = 5 Rearrange and Add up -2x = 0 Divide both sides by 2 -x = 0 Multiply both sides by (-1) x = 0 Which is the solution for the Negative Case
Distribution is aka Multiply
Solve the Positive Case (2x-5) = 5 Rearrange and Add up 2x = 10 Divide both sides by 2 x = 5 Which is the solution for the Positive Case
Wrap up the solution x=0 x=5
So, your initial answer is correct! Anything you'd like me to explain more for?
Nope, u made it crystal clear.
Awesome to know! :)
Just follow the steps in the problem. Every step is correct, so there are no mistakes. I don't see the reason to complicate this problem.
