## Algebra 1: Common Core (15th Edition)

First, we subtract $\frac{3}{4}$ from each side of the equation: $|d + \frac{1}{2}| = 0 - \frac{3}{4}$ Convert all fractions so that they all have the same denominators: $|d + \frac{2}{4}| = -\frac{3}{4}$ Subtract $\frac{2}{4}$ from each side of the equation: $|d| = -\frac{5}{4}$ An absolute value cannot be negative; therefore, this equation has no solution.
