## anonymous one year ago 2|x| = 3

If I divide both sides by 2, I get this: $\left| x \right| = \frac{3}{2}$

2. anonymous

why would you divide by 2?

3. Michele_Laino

since I have to compute the value of $$x$$ now, you have to consider the subsequent two cases: $\begin{gathered} x \geqslant 0 \to \left| x \right| = x \hfill \\ \hfill \\ x < 0 \to \left| x \right| = - x \hfill \\ \end{gathered}$
