Answer

c=$\frac{1}{2}$ c=-$\frac{5}{6}$

Work Step by Step

Original Equation |1+6c|-7=-3 Add 7 to both sides |1+6c|=4 Take 1+6c and solve 1+6c=4 Subtract 1 from both sides 6c=3 Divide both sides by 6 c=$\frac{1}{2}$ Make 1+6c negative and solve -1-6c=4 Add 4 to both sides -6c=5 Divide both sides by -6 c=-$\frac{5}{6}$
