Solve the equation

Hi Arie;

|4x+6|=5

Because this is absolute value...

+(4x+6) is the same as -(4x+6).

4x+6=5............-(4x+6)=5

4x=-1...............-4x-6=5

**x=-1/4**...............-4x=11

.........................

**x=-11/4**Let's check our results...

|4x+6|=5

x=-1/4

|[(4)(-1/4)]+6|=5

|-1+6|=5

5=5

x=-11/4

|[(4)(-11/4)]+6|=5

|-11+6|=5

|-5|=5

5=5
