I need to solve this exercise using the absolute value properties. The result must be in the form of an interval. I would appreciate it if you could send the solution written on a piece of paper. Thanks!!!... Math.png

but seriously folks... $x+2 = x+7$ you can split this into 3 areas $x < 7$ $7 \leq x \leq 2$ $2 < x$ In area 1 we have $(x+2) = (x+7)$ $x+2 = x+7$ $0 = 5$ and thus there are no solutions to this equation in area 1 In area 2 we have $(x+2) = x+7$ $x 2 = x+7$ $9 = 2x$ $x = \dfrac 9 2$ In area 3 we have $(x+2) = (x+7)$ and again it should be clear that there are no solutions to this in area 3 So there is only one solution to this equation and that is $x = \dfrac 9 2$ You talk about wanting the solution as intervals. This suggests to me that the expression in question should actually be an inequality. Not an equality. Have you expressed the question correctly?

HINT: $x + 2 = x + 7 \implies x + 2 = x + 7 \text { or } x + 2 = \ (x + 7).$ Now what?

It's not my equation, but I want to understand the solution in the beginning part: but seriously folks... $x+2 = x+7$ you can split this into 3 areas *$x < 7$ *$7 \leq x \leq 2$ *$2 < x$ In what way you get the (*) inequation? Last edited by skipjack; February 17th, 2018 at 07:56 PM.
