Q: How do I solve this absolute value equation? I’m trying to figure out what kind of value \$a\$ would satisfy the following equation: \$\$|a-7|=|a+5|\$\$ I’ve tried going through all of the absolute values and seeing what could possibly satisfy that, but I’m still stuck. I think I’m just not seeing the right approach or something, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! A: Your equation states that \$\$|a-7|=|a+5|\Longleftrightarrow a-7=a+5\Longleftrightarrow a(a-7)=a^2+10a\Longleftrightarrow a(a-7)=a^2+10a-28\$\$ Now, since \$a\$ and \$a-7\$ are both positive and \$a^2+10a-28>0\$, this means that \$a=7\$ satisfies your equation.

Burbank voters will have their chance to show what they think about plans to redevelop a 12-acre parcel that once housed the nation’s second-largest aircraft-manufacturing plant when they go to the polls Thursday. The half-acre tract at Burbank Airport that once held the Douglas Aircraft Co. plant has been owned by the city since 2002. The parcel, which is bisected by a busy airport runway, has been largely ignored since it was given to the city by the company and is now slated to
