# How do you solve 7-4abs(5x-1)=-17?

Jul 26, 2015

#### Answer:

x=$\frac{7}{5}$, -1

#### Explanation:

It would have two solutions, one with 7-4(5x-1)= -17 and the other with 7-4(-5x+1)= -17.

The first one would be -4(5x-1)= -24
5x-1=6, x= $\frac{7}{5}$

The second one would be -4(-5x+1)= -24

-5x+1=6. x=-1
