How do you solve # |x|=11#?

1 Answer

Answer:

#x=pm11#

Explanation:

The absolute value sign (the two vertical lines that the #x# is sitting between) means that whatever the value of #x# is, whether positive or negative, it will be positive when the absolute value operation is performed.

For instance, if #x=11#, then

#abs11=11#

However, if we set #x=-11#, then

#abs(-11)=11#

And so #x# can be 11 and #-11#.
