|4x+12|=16 we need to get rid of the absolute value sign to do the we split the equation into 2 by (4x+12)=-16 and (4x+12)=16 we now solve each equations arriving at 2 solution

Ok so my answer is c?
LynFran
  • LynFran
so 4x+12=-16 we take 12 frm both sides we get 4x+12-12=-16-12 4x=-28 divide both sides by 4 we get x=-28/4 x=-7 now solve the other equation to get the other solution for x 4x+12=16 ??

-1/2 x + 1 = -x + 8 first add +x to each side of the equal sign
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
what do you get after adding x to each side?
LynFran
  • LynFran
yea like what vocaloid said ^^
LynFran
  • LynFran
-1/2(x)+x+1=-x+x+8 1/2(x)+1=8 now subtract 1 frm both sides
LynFran
  • LynFran
what do we get
anonymous
  • anonymous
1/2x=7
LynFran
  • LynFran
good now multiple both sides by 2
LynFran
  • LynFran
we get??
