Start with the given equation Add 4 to both sides. Since the equation is never true (note: remember, the absolute value of any number is always positive), there are no solutions to This means that there are no solutions to the equation Answer by rapaljer(4667)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Do you mean |7x-4|-4=-11??? If so, add +4 to each side: |7x-4|= -11+4 |7x-4|= -7 Since an absolute value cannot equal a negative number, there is NO SOLUTION! R^2 Dr. Robert J. Rapalje
