What is the solution for this equation?
2x  3 = 5
Absolute value means the distance away from zero. Since (2x  3) is 5 away from zero, then the value of (2x  3) could be 5 or 5.
2x  3 = 5 2x  3 = 5 or 2x  3 = 5 {set (2x  3) equal to 5 and 5} 2x = 8 or 2x = 2 {added 3 to each side of both equations} x = 4 or x = 1 {divided each side of both equations by 2} Ask Algebra House Comments are closed.
