OpenStudy (anonymous):

hmm, i think its no solution...

OpenStudy (anonymous):

you are right, no solution

OpenStudy (anonymous):

sorry - i'm off key tonight.....

OpenStudy (anonymous):

|x|= -4 is no solution, you cant do that

OpenStudy (anonymous):

no jimmyrep is right, except he forgot a step

OpenStudy (anonymous):

what?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

no |x|= -4 isnt possible thats a negative number.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

right |x| has to be positive - by definition

OpenStudy (anonymous):

oh i read the question wrong. lol. its no solution, 14 cant equal 7 without a negative number, which you cat get from absolute numbers

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes im right :)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

whithin | | it has to be possitive,

OpenStudy (anonymous):

or when you drop || x has to equal a positive number.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

|x−3|≠−7 | | The absolute value is always positive, never negative. Except if you put minus in front of it.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yup no solution!
