3w1 = 3w
or
abs(3w1)  abs(3w)
I know you can use a calculator and find the answer easily, but we're supposed to know how to do this without a calculator.

four possibilites
A. (3w1) = (3w)
B (3w1) = (3w)
C. (3w1) = (3w)
D. 3(w1) = (3w)
A and D are the same, use A
B and C are the same, use B
so
A:
3w1 = 3w
0 * w = 1 no solution possible
B:
3 w  1 =  3 w
6 w = 1
w = 1/6
