Could someone help me solve this Absolute Equation? Please? I really can’t figure it out and I would really appreciate any help...
Question~~
Evaluate the given expressions
when a = 3, b = -3, c = 4, and d = -1
(a/c)|c| + b – d
My answer~
(a/c)|c|+b-d
(3/4)|4|+(-3)-(-1)
(3/4)=0.75
0.75|4|+(-3)-(-1)
This is the only step that i could figure out

  1. 3/4(|4|)−3−(−1)
    =3/4(4)−3−(−1)
    =3−3−(−1)
    =0−(−1)
    =1
