MA001 Unit 1 Test - Question 8


Hi… I just finished the Unit 1 Test and have no idea how to solve question 8 - it was way harder than any of the practice questions in the unit. What do I do with the second x in absolute value brackets? If someone could post an answer for question 8, I would really appreciate the help! Thanks!

Having said that, I think that you’ll find the answer to your question in the following similarly named topic, started on April 2015, also here in Saylor’s Discussion Forums:

Particularly, the answer on that topic that was posted by the user @Marcel_nl seems to be a step-by-step resolution. Here’s the direct link to that reply: MA001 Unit 1 Test question 8 [ reply / answer by Marcel_nl ]
