x = 2, x = -2

x = -2, x = 0

x = 2, x = 0

x = 0, x = 1 over 2

x = -2, x = 0

x = 2, x = 0

x = 0, x = 1 over 2

x = 2, x = -2

x = -2, x = 0

x = 2, x = 0

x = 0, x = 1 over 2

x = -2, x = 0

x = 2, x = 0

x = 0, x = 1 over 2

Hi Rowen,

5 |2x-2|+8=18

5|2x-2|= 18-8

5|2x-2|=10

5/5 |2x-2|=10/5

|2x-2|=2

2|x-1|=2

|x-1|=1

x-1= 1 or x-1 = -1

x=2 0r x=0

check: If x=2, LHS:5|4-2|+8=10+8=18=RHS

If x=0, LHS= 5|0-2|+8=10+8=18=RHS

Ans: x=2, x=0
