As per Vips000 solution after you solve we get \(=|x|\)

now if we were given an additional constraint that X is positive then we can solve for the modulus right?

If we know that x is positive then we can solve the modulus and obtain \(|x|=x\), yes you're right.

But be careful, in this case both c and e would be correct

C). \(|x|\) => \(x\)

E). \(x\)

They are the same.

Hope it's clear
