    \[-3|x-2|=2\] now we square this.. the only way to get rid of the absoute sign is to square it

    notice that the right side became 12-10=2

    ok srry im just learning this ok and then gives u this [−3|x−2|]^2=2^2

    that is ok. well, this first gives \[-3|x-2|=2\] so, we the square it like you just wrote above

    \[(-3)^2(x-2)^2=(2^2)\] notice that the absolute sign has disappeared

    or to avoid squaring, you can remove the abolute sign in two ways...... \[-3|x-2|=2\implies|x-2|=-{3\over2}\]

    this gives the above form.. now, by definition of ABSOLUTE value, can it ever become negative?

    check, plug in "x=" those numbers in the given problem on the left side. That should give you the right side.
