Final Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Starting from the 3rd step

|0.5x + 1.5| = 0.5 

-(0.5x + 1.5) = 0.5

-0.5x - 1.5 = 0.5

-0.5x = 0.5 + 1.5

-0.5x = 2

Multiply both sides by -1

0.5x = -2

Divide both sides by 0.5

0.5x/0.5 = -2/0.5

x = -4

is the other solution.


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
