# Thread: If x = -|x|, then which of the following statements are true?

1. Good post? |

## If x = -|x|, then which of the following statements are true?

I x=0
II x<0
III x>0

A. I and III
B. III only
C. I,II and III
D. II only
E. None

for x=0, -|0|=0 isn't it?

for x<0, -|-1| = -|1|=-1.

I thought it was both I and II but obviously that's not the answer... so help!

2. Good post? |
I think it would be II. only?

It's obviously not true for x>0, and it is true for x<0...

For x=0, I guess technically you could say it's not true because you can't take the 'negative' of 0?

Hope that helps!
