I dont think that its B
KaiserTheSlayer
  • KaiserTheSlayer
so to answer this equation, you need to get rid of the absolute equation ssign
anonymous
  • anonymous
Alright, so first you need to know. | | That means absolute value.
anonymous
  • anonymous
i know that
anonymous
  • anonymous
I know the answer, but I'm trying to figure out how to explain it lol.
KaiserTheSlayer
  • KaiserTheSlayer
ok 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
KaiserTheSlayer
  • KaiserTheSlayer
is that good enough to help you find the answer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry but not really.. they all look the same with the exception of b
anonymous
  • anonymous
But remember, a negative - a positive = negative.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so that would be -x - 5 = 3 is false
KaiserTheSlayer
  • KaiserTheSlayer
this is because you took out the | |
anonymous
  • anonymous
so b
anonymous
  • anonymous
How so Kaiser? If you take out the absolute value sign and x is a negative then -x - 5 wouldn't equal 3.
KaiserTheSlayer
  • KaiserTheSlayer
wait... i wrote the equation wrong... it would not be b
anonymous
  • anonymous
ya lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
i thought ABSOLUTE VALUE CANT BE NEGATIVE?!
KaiserTheSlayer
  • KaiserTheSlayer
so here is the formula |x-5|=3 -|x-5|=3 solve the equation and see which of the answers fit
anonymous
  • anonymous
absolute value can't be negative correct.
anonymous
  • anonymous
SO confused 0_o
KaiserTheSlayer
  • KaiserTheSlayer
no my equation would be about correct
KaiserTheSlayer
  • KaiserTheSlayer
look at this and figure it out..

in your equation though lets say x = 2 so |2-5|=3 but if you have that negative sign out there -|2-5|=3 it would be says -3=3 which is false lol.

AHH What am i supposed to do??
KaiserTheSlayer
  • KaiserTheSlayer
do u just want the answer? or how to do it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yea cause we can just give you the answer if you want, cause i don't think we can explain this properly.
anonymous
  • anonymous
could you just give me the answer? The correct one??
KaiserTheSlayer
  • KaiserTheSlayer
yah it would be x-5=-3
anonymous
