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? (2 points)
x = −9, x = 21
x = −6, x = 18
x = 6, x = −18
No solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and since this is a modulus sign, \[x6=12 \] implies, \[x=\pm12+6\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so x=+12+6 and x=12+6 hence our solutions are x=18, x=6
