    Step(1):Add 4 to both sides |2x+6|=24 Step(2):Distribute 2x+6=24 ,2x+6=-24 Step(3):Subtract 5 from both sides 2x=18 , 2x=-30 Step(4):Divide By 2 : x=9 , x=-15

    The Aim From Adding And Subtracting Is To get the Absolute Value(modulus) in a side alone and the others in another Side To solve for x ... In Your Equation The Modulus Is Stick with -8 so i added 8 to cancel it and leave the modulus alone .. IF it was |x|-5=8 i will add 5 and so on.... It depend on the Number(s) on the same Side
