anonymous one year ago What is the value of the expression |x| + |y + z| when x = –7, y = 8, and z = –11?

1. pooja195

$\huge~\rm~|−7|+|−8−11|$

2. pooja195

$\huge~\rm~ 7+|−8−11|$ The absolute value of -7 is 7 so we take out the bars an replace with 7

3. pooja195

Next solve whats in the bars -11-8= ?

4. jackthegreatest

-19

5. jackthegreatest

and since its in bars, that is 19

6. jackthegreatest

You didnt need to do the problem for them.

8. triciaal

process is correct but in the original y = 8 not -8
