I wa reading the question and I do believe that there is an answer but it is 0
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thank you for your reply..... have no clue what to do :/

x=0 because on both side -5 is on so you know that only the x matters right its like this 5x+0=7x+0
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok you kind of get it if its equal then the -5 fives on both sides cancel out so you get 3x=8x which 0 would be the only realistic answer got it??

Hello?

  • anonymous
Yes am thinking sorry but I input it and it says it's incorrect (0) ...... i have online hw so it tells me right away if it's right or wrong ..... I have unlimited tries but I have yet to figure it out .... I haven't worked one out like this one before with absolute values on both sides ...... @Sohal

  • anonymous
wait one sec Ill figure out the problem

Hello??

Literally tried all of it and still "incorrect" -.- sometimes the software needs a specific answer to count it correct. For example one time the answer for some thing was -5 & 3 (two part answer, not an inverse function) I input it so many ways that were correct and it did not take it till I put [-5,3] .... my professor doesn't expect that but apparently this software has high standards. @Sohal

Haha literally right now I was working on solving x^2-x-20 by factoring and I knew it was x=5 x=-4 ...... i did a similar problem and it didn't take the answer till I put it in parentheses yet this equation didn't take it until it was without parentheses! See I told you ! I like that I have unlimited tries but it's picky on how I write it...... @Sohal

do you still need help?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes.... @Anguyennn
Anguyennn
  • Anguyennn
ok
Anguyennn
  • Anguyennn
so first thing you can do is bring one equation to the other side
Anguyennn
  • Anguyennn
whenever it is an absolute value, the number inside will always turn out negative
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok like subtract -8x+5 to the other side ?
Anguyennn
  • Anguyennn
hold on lemme do this on my paper before showing you :P
Anguyennn
  • Anguyennn
just give me a sec
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok ...... i got 3x-8x= 0
Anguyennn
  • Anguyennn
hmm I am kind of stuck on this one
Anguyennn
  • Anguyennn
I just know that the answer is x=0 and x=10/11
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh wow, I input it and is says it's correct..... thank you ! But how do you know ? @Anguyennn ??

I understand the concept, but it hangs me loose when theres a x in it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
No it's fine ! & Yes it's a bit tricky.... Maybe I should use math way a bit more often haha..... i think if you pay it shows the steps right ? I guess I know why it's so popular for a reason, cause it works haha ! Then again maybe I will just ask my professor during her office hours ..... haha @Anguyennn
