-10-(10n+8)=-78 and by switching the signs of everything -[-10-(10n+8)]=-78
okay but what happens with the negative in front of the absolute value?
I mean switching the signs of the side with variable in it.
\[\large\rm -10-|10n+8|=-78\]Should probably add 10 to each side before dealing with the signs that the absolute value gives us :)\[\large\rm -|10n+8|=-68\]
You make it into parentheses, so just ignore the absolute value Negative times negative makes it positive
oh okay i see. Thank you so much! :)
Did you get your first and second solution?
not yet one sec
10n+8=+or- 68 right so far?
Yea that is correct.
i got n=-38/5 and n=6
the -68 involves a fraction.
Yea, I got that too.
Thanks! You really helped! :D
