Need help w/ an absolute value problem where a no. is placed outside the equation within the absolute value signs-what should I do first?
In that case, do NOT multiply the 7 with the expression 3x - 1. That'll change the absolute value! Instead, divide 7 on both sides, and then proceed.
|3x - 1| = 2/7
I hope that helps.
P.S. THIS IS MY FIRST POST!!!
