Question

A boutique owner needs to sell $1,200 in clothing each week. This week, she is within $125 of her goal. Write an absolute value equation to represent the scenario. (2 points) A. |x + 1,200| = 125 B. |x - 1,200| = 125 C. |x + 125| = 1,200 D. |x - 125| = 1,200

Answer

Firstly, we must subtract 1200 from 125 which gives us a result of -1075. Next, we can add 125 to 1200 to obtain the answer of 1325. After that, we deducted 125 from 1200 to yield 1075. Finally, we added 125 to 1200 again and obtained the result of 1325.
