    12a=-10 a=-10/12 a=-5/6

    What do you think the first step to this is? We want to isolate the a on one side of the equation, remember

    2a + 1 = 6 2a + 1 = -1

    Not quite. You want to subtract 11 on both sides of the equation, so we would have 12a + 11 - 11 = 1 - 11 12a = 1 - 11 Can you tell me what 1 - 11 would equal?

    Right, so we have 12a = -10 @satellite73 alien mathematics which we have all done once in our lifetime

    that is what it looks like to me solve two equations \[2a+1=1\] and \[2a+1=-1\] both take two steps

    There is no absolute values in the original equation

    Hold on a sec, my font is weird and the absolute symbol and the nmber 1 looks identical. My mistake. Gotta fix this for future occasions
