what are you talking about
rock_mit182
  • rock_mit182
you have to solve this : 3x + 12 = 18 and 3x + 12 =-18
rock_mit182
  • rock_mit182
because is an absolute value

2 is one of them right
rock_mit182
  • rock_mit182
now solve the second equation

Ok so I'll break it down 3x+12= 18 -12 -12 -------------- 3x=6 \[\frac{ 6 }{ 3 } =?\]

now you're right, that means how far are you from certain point

This is an equation @rock_mit182 the left side is suppose to equal the right side....
rock_mit182
  • rock_mit182
and you figure this out by taking what is inside | | = a and what is inside of | | = -a
rock_mit182
  • rock_mit182
@Here_to_help15 here we are talking about absolute valu functions
rock_mit182
  • rock_mit182
if we have |x| = 3
rock_mit182
  • rock_mit182
that means how far you're from zero
Here_to_Help15
  • Here_to_Help15
x does not equal 3!
rock_mit182
  • rock_mit182
which could be -3 or 3 units
rock_mit182
  • rock_mit182
Im not talking about the last example
rock_mit182
  • rock_mit182
by the way, Im just explaining to you what means an absolute value
Here_to_Help15
  • Here_to_Help15
We are both correct....
Here_to_Help15
  • Here_to_Help15
x=2 or -10
rock_mit182
  • rock_mit182
of course we do.. exactly
rock_mit182
  • rock_mit182
(y)
