# How do you graph and solve #| 5 x + 5 | = 0#?

##### 2 Answers

I have no idea how you would graph this context other than a line parallel to the y-axis that passes through

#### Explanation:

The value on the right is zero. So what is on the left has to have the same value as zero.

So

As far as I can see

This is because

and

so

The graph should be v-shaped.

#### Explanation:

**Solving the equation for #x#.**

Remove the absolute value.

Subtract

Divide both sides by

**Graphing the Equation**

Since the expression inside the absolute value bars can be positive or negative, and we need to graph it, we need to substitute

Now we need to substitute positive and negative values for

**Table of Points**

Plot the points, then connect the dots. You should have a v-shaped graph.
