## anonymous 3 years ago What is the solution set for |–2x + 8| = 12

1. anonymous

CaseI -2x + 8 = 12 -2x = 4 x = -2 Case II - (-2x+8) = 12 -2x + 8 = -12 -2x = -20 x=10

$- 2x + 8 = \pm 12$ Now, we take $-2x + 8 = + 12$ We get x = -4 When we take $- 2x + 8 = -12$ We get x = 10. Hence the answer is x = -4 or x= 10.
