Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For this problem, you are observing the nature of the solutions for each absolute value expression. For the first expression, you have two solutions for x that give 5 since any value substituted for 2x  4 always yields positive value. For the second expression, you don't have the solutions since 3x  4 is never positive. Because of the wording for each statement, I am not sure which is the right answer, but I would say that "Equation #1 has more solutions than equation #2"
