Patrick, My question is how would u do a problem like this.......... I am not sure what your question is. If the square brackets on the left side of the equation are just brackets then I assume that you are to solve [2x37] =15. In that case my solution would be: Add 37 to both sides to get 2x  37 + 37 = 15 + 37 That is 2x = 52. Now divide both sides by 2 to get x = 26.
If the brackets on the left side designate absolute value, In the case that 2x  37 = 15 then we solved this equation above and got x = 26. In the case that 2x  37 = 15 then arguing as above gives x = 11. Thus either x = 26 or x = 11. Harley
