  • algebra -

    From your information, I don't see an error. May the error is asking you to describe one.

  • algebra -

    wait. are the brackets around the numbers saying to find their absolute value, or is that just ot separate them?

  • algebra -

    Absolute numbers are not indicated by brackets "[]" but by straight lines "II".

    I-13I - I13I = 0

    (The vertical lines should be longer, but I don't know how to print them on the computer.)

  • algebra -

    thanks they were straight lines so I am going with 0 thanks
