That is impossible. You have two variables, and only one equation, so there can be no single answer. However, we can say that:
t=1-x and t=1+x

Now find me the square root of -1. :p

But then x would equal t + 1.
For t = -3.

x = |t - 1|
x = |(-3) - 1|
x = |(-4)|
x = 4

t = x - 1
t = (-3) - 1
t = -4

-4 != -3
