# How do you solve the equation 4-absx=3?

Feb 26, 2017

x = 1, –1

#### Explanation:

Start by subtracting 4 from both sides to get:

– |x| = –1

Multiply both sides by –1

$| x | = 1$

Eliminate the absolute value to get the solutions

x = 1 and –x = 1

divide the second equation by –1 to get the second solution: x = –1
