## anonymous one year ago solve for x: -3|2x+6| = -12 this is about absolute values A. x=1 & x= 5 B. x= -1 and x= -5 C. x= -9 and x= 3 D. No solution

1. jdoe0001

$${ -3|2x+6| = -12\implies |2x+6| = \cfrac{-12}{-3}\implies \begin{cases} +(2x+6)=\frac{-12}{-3}&x=?\\ -(2x+6)=\frac{-12}{-3}&x=? \end{cases} }$$
