Do you know what the absolute value bars represent
or what they do to a number
the vertical lines around the -x mean the absolute value which is always positive so what do you think ?
no NOte: the right side of the equation is negative
so -x would be a negative too since there is a negative? or is there no solution?
I'm probably making it harder than it really is. -.-
Yes I understand that, but, I'm still confuse on how to get my answer. >.< Sorry I'm really trying
now that you get that we can get it
Absolute value can't be equivalent to a negative.
since we know that no matter what we plug in for x since it is in absolute value, it will never equal a negative
So it's no solution right?
just for future problems
Absolute value is basically a distance. And distance is always positive. (if you want, I can elaborate)
Okay... I originally got that but I wasn't sure.
if you have -1 times |-x| = -10 you could get a solution
And that's fine @SolomonZelman I get it now.
