Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the vertical lines around the x mean the absolute value which is always positive so what do you think ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so x would be a negative too since there is a negative? or is there no solution?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since we know that no matter what we plug in for x since it is in absolute value, it will never equal a negative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Absolute value is basically a distance. And distance is always positive. (if you want, I can elaborate)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you have 1 times x = 10 you could get a solution
