    HINT: |2x – 4| < 6 is same thing as -6 < 2x – 4 < 6

    Yeah, and you can quickly use my knowledge of end behavior. Just take a look at the leading term (2x⁴). We know that it is even function, which mean both ends are going at the same direction. Now, take a look at leading coefficient. It is positive so both ends are going up. Is this clear?
