Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0divide both sides by (3) first, which gives us x + 7 = 4 the absolute value sign means that there are two cases: (x+7) = 4 and (x+7) = 4 solve each of those equations for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What about this one? Solve for x: x + 2 + 16 = 14 x = 32 and x = 4 x = 4 and x = 0 x = 0 and x = 28 No solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0after we subtract 16 from both sides we get x+2 = 2 since absolute value is never negative, this has no solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the absolute values means the positive value...i.e dw:1435522559137:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What about this one? Solve for x: 32x + 6 = 12 1) x = 1 and x = 5 2) x = 1 and x = 5 3) x = 9 and x = 3 4) No solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so x+2+16=14 x+18=14 x=1418 x=?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait what problem are you talking about? I am talking about this problem Solve for x: 32x + 6 = 12 x = 1 and x = 5 x = 1 and x = 5 x = 9 and x = 3 No solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i thought it can't be 4 because it can't be a negative?
