beware where the

now to look at the sum.

we got

now we will divide all by

now here is where the "tricky" part of the absolute value comes in,

as now we break the sum up, to take into consideration the "negative" side of things. so now we have two sums, of which:

**or**

**or**

**or**

**or**

thus you end up with two answers which satisfy the equation.
