    Do you know of x^-2 = 1/(x^2)?

    \((x-2)^4 =\dfrac{1}{625}\) \(\sqrt[4]{(x-2)^4} = \sqrt[4]{\dfrac{1}{625}}\) \(|x-2| = \dfrac{1}{\sqrt[4]{625}} = \dfrac{1}{5}\) \(|x-2| = \dfrac{1}{5}\)

    Look at last step. There is absolute value.

    Do you know how to get rid of absolute value?

    I can't see your last step because it all says math processing error

    So then does x=.5 and x=-2 is that what you are meaning what the answers are
