Help-I just started Algebra II and I'm lost.

What is the solution of 10 = absolute value of 7-3x.

Please show steps so I can understand

    If |7-3x| = 10
    then either (7-3x) = 10 or -(7-3x) = 10

    for 7-3x = 10
    -3x = 3
    x = -1

    for -7 + 3x = 10
    3x = 17
    x = 17/3

    so x = -1 or x = 17/3
