The given absolute value equation is |2x5|=7.
The absolute value of a number x is given by:
|x|={(x, if x0),(x,ifx<0)}
This represents the distance of x from the origin on the real number line.
To solve absolute value equation, solve two separate equations as,
2x5=7 or 2x5=7
Thus, the absolute value equation can be solved by property of absolute value number.
