the answer is 3, but if you subtract 8-5 that equals 3 which will give you the answer
its x - 8 = -5 the five is negative tho so..
I just want to know the steps to figuring this out cuz i know thats not the right answer sorry..
First, add 8 to both sides. Can you do that?
\[|x|-8=-5\]ok 1st step it to add 8 to both sides of the equation
\(\large |x| - 8 = -~5\) \(\large ~~~~~+8~~~~~+8\)
so 16 and 3?
No. -8 + 8 = 0 -5 + 8 = 3. That is good.
You end up with \(\large |x| = 3\) Ok so far?
the 8 is not negative tho its x minus 8 equals negative 5
example solve for x... \[|x|-7=9\]\[|x|=9+7\]\[|x|=16\]\[x=\pm 16\]
In our original equation, -8 (minus eight) means subtract 8. A subtraction can always be written as the sum of the opposite. So -8 means plus the opposite of 8. \(\large |x| - 8 = -5\) \(\large |x| + (-~8) = -5\) \(\large~~~~~~~~~~+8~~~~~+8\) After adding 8 to both sides, you get: \(\large |x| = 3\)
Do you understand now how we add 8 to both sides to isolate \(|x|\)?
the options for it tho aren't just one number its one of these x = −13 and x = −3 x = 3 and x = −3 x = 3 and x = 13 No solution
plus i dont understand how you turned minus eight into negative eight, i dont understand why you would do that cri
Ok. Now we have a simple absolute value equation. On the left side we have just \(|x|\). This equals a number, 3, on the right side. Whenever you have an absolute value equation where something in absolute value signs equals a number, you separate it into two simple equations, both without absolute signs. This is the pattern. Then I'll show you with your equation. To solve the absolute value equation \(\large |x| = k\), where k is a non-zero number, solve these two equations \(\large x = k\) or \(\large x = -k\)
heres another example ... |dw:1439778127102:dw|
With your problem, the equation now is \(\large |x| = 3\) We separate it into two equations: \(\large x = 3\) or \(\large x = -3\) Since these two equations are already solved for x, that is the final solution.
Let's go back to the -8 part above that is still bothering you. Subtraction is defined as adding the opposite. 8 - 2 means 8 + (-2) -3 - 4 means -3 + (-4) 5 - (-7) means 5 + 7 In general, for numbers a and b, a - b means a + (-b) That is simply the definition of subtraction. In our equation, we are subtracting 8 from the absolute value of x. We can turn the subtraction of 8 into the addition of the opposite of 8. The opposite of 8 is -8, so \(\large |x| - 8 = |x| + (-8) \) Then when we add 8 to both sides to eliminate the -8 on the left side, we end up with -8 + 8 which zero. That is how we eliminate the -8 from the left side and end up with only \(\large |x|\) on the left side.
