\(2|x − 6| + 14 \color{green}{- 14} = 38 \color{green}{- 14}\)

@BrianaNicole16 what is 14 - 14 ?

So now we have \(2|x − 6| = 38 \color{green}{- 14}\) @BrianaNicole16, What is \(38 - 14\)?

24

2|x-6|=24... now divide both sides by 2..
anonymous
  • anonymous
how? @LynFran
LynFran
  • LynFran
2|x-6|/2=24/2 the 2 will cancel frm the left side of the equation leaving |x-6|=24/2
LynFran
  • LynFran
wats 24/2=?
anonymous
  • anonymous
12
LynFran
  • LynFran
so we have |x-6|=12
LynFran
  • LynFran
now we need to get rid of the absolute value sign...to do that we split the equation into 2... one negative and one positive...like this.. (x-6)=12 and (x-6)= -12

  • anonymous
ok what next
LynFran
  • LynFran
we solve each equation for x
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
LynFran
  • LynFran
hint:add 6 to both sides of the equation
LynFran
  • LynFran
so we have x-6+6=12+6 ... and x-6+6= -12+6 x=? x=?
anonymous
  • anonymous
for x-6+6=12+6 x is 18
LynFran
  • LynFran
yes and wats the other x=?
anonymous
  • anonymous
-6
LynFran
  • LynFran
correct
anonymous
  • anonymous
thank you so much
