Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.098x+9 = 2x+3 Clear the absolutevalue bars by splitting the equation into its two cases, one for the Positive case and the other for the Negative case. The Absolute Value is 98x+9 For the Negative case we'll use 9(8x+9) For the Positive case we'll use 9(8x+9) 9(8x+9) = 2x+3 Multiply 72x81 = 2x+3 Rearrange and Add up 70x = 84 Divide both sides by 70 x = (6/5) 9(8x+9) = 2x+3 Multiply 72x+81 = 2x+3 Rearrange and Add up 74x = 78 Divide both sides by 74 x = (39/37) Multiply both sides by (1) x = (39/37)
