8-53.

Solve the following equations for

*x*. Homework Help ✎4

*x*− 6*y =*20(*x*− 6) = 9+= 8 2 +

= 5

Your answer will be an equation with *y* in it.

Try multiplying both sides of the equation by 2 first.

Multiply both sides of the equation by the common denominator.

*x* = 2.5

Start by subtracting 2 from both sides. Then remember that equations with absolute value usually have two solutions.

*x* = 3 or 0
