The minimum and maximum temperature on a cold day in Lollypop Town can be modeled by the equation below:
2x − 6 + 14 = 38
What are the minimum and maximum temperatures for this day?
x = −9, x = 21
x = −6, x = 18
x = 6, x = −18
No solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12x6/2=24/2 the 2 will cancel frm the left side of the equation leaving x6=24/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now 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.. (x6)=12 and (x6)= 12
