Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so before we start we have to know what type of equation this is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the type of brackets are a dead give away because it shows us it is a absolute value equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since we now know it is a absolute value equation we know you can only have 2 answers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When dealing with absolute equations you know you are going to have a + and a . For instance 3x − 8 + 15 = 18 Subtract 15 from both sides of the equal sign. 3x − 8 + 15 = 18 3x − 8 + 1515 = 18  15 3x − 8 = 3 Now divide 3x − 8 = 3 by three on each side of the equal sign. 3x − 8 /3 = 3 /3 x − 8 = 1 Now we have x − 8 = 1 but we also have x − 8 = 1 notice the  1. When dealing with absolute equations like this you will have a + and a  Now just solve these two equations x − 8 = 1 and x − 8 = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Matt_J02 I did not. He / she still needs to finish it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I helped show her or him how to break it down because he or she might be having trouble in breaking down the equation to a form she or he can work with.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03x − 8 + 15 = 18 subtract 15 from both sides 3x  8 = 3 divide both sides by 3 x  8 = 1 solve the 2 equations x  8 = 1 and x  8 = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Nixy  you need to remove the mod lines around the x  8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@welshfella maybe but I would hope they can at least remove them at this stage in their study.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0 oh ok  i guess it was a deliberate mistake on your part.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@welshfella Not a mistake at all. Lets just take it a step further so he or she is not perplexed. I mean if he or she cannot remove absolute bars I am sure he or she cannot solve x8 = 1 and x8 = 1 x8 = 1 and x8 = 1 Now add 8 to each side of the equation x8 = 1 x8 = 1 x  8+8 =1 + 8 x = 9 x8 = 1 x8 = 1 x8+8 = 1+8 x= 7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nevertheless writing x  8! = 1 is an incorrect statement

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@welshfella it is not if you remove the bars, which is the simplest thing to do in this problem....I was showing the user a process . Nitpick much? Also, you stated x  8! = 1. You should use a bar  and not an ! mark. I might not understand what you mean when you stat x  8! = 1 ...... Rolls eyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its not nitpicking at all and typos are easily made the fact is x  8 = 1 does not follow from x  8 = 1
