you cant negate an absolute value

I know.

\[|something| \neq negative something \]

| | = -# not good

sites still going slow

so what happens when you subtract 16 on both sides
don't we have |junk|=negative something?

???

|x+2|=-2 never happens for any input

|something| is either positive or neutral

|something| is never negative

we can put anything into | | and the output will either be 0 or positive

| | represents distance

distance is either positive or zero

distance is never negative

absolute value is the distance of some number to 0

|-3|=3
|0|=0
|3|=3
|-141441|=141441
look the outputs are never negative

So the answer is no solution
?

That's what i'm saying.. I didn't put a negative inside the bars i put them on the outside

butter ask yourself can you ever get a negative output for |something|
the answer is no

|junk| is never negative

\[|junk| \neq negative something \]

I know that... i didn't make |junk| negative it was still positive

I know that an absolute value can never be negative!

then what you know there is no solution

to this equation you have

Okay, thank you. Just making sure.

\[|x+2| \neq -2 \]

see there is no negative
except on the OTHERSIDE of the = sign.. and you can do that..

no you cannot
|junk| is never negative

|x+2|=-2 has no solution

|dw:1318992395252:dw|

|x+2| is positive or neutral
-2 is always negative
how could they ever be the same?

they are not the same... that's not a finished equation

|x+2| will never be the same as -2 for any x

I don't understand. but okay.

= means the same...

yes
= means we are looking for when two expressions are the same or meet or intersect

right |junk| is never negative

This is a redimentary proof that: |N| = -# is just plain false
