PLEASE HELP ME.. I WANT HELP, AND I WILL MEDAL AND FAN!!!
Below are the steps to solve an equation:
Step 1: x − 5 + 2 = 5
Step 2: x − 5 = 5 − 2
Step 3: x − 5 = 3
Which of the following is a correct next step to solve the equation?
x + 5 = −3
−x − 5 = 3
x − 5 = −3
x + 5 = 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so to answer this equation, you need to get rid of the absolute equation ssign

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright, so first you need to know.   That means absolute value.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok and when you take out the absolute value sign, you have to create two different equations, one which has the equation and the answer without the absolute value sign and one that has the equation, but the answer will be negative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How so Kaiser? If you take out the absolute value sign and x is a negative then x  5 wouldn't equal 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in your equation though lets say x = 2 so 25=3 but if you have that negative sign out there 25=3 it would be says 3=3 which is false lol.
