 Question 267148: Need help with this equation: Solve the equation if possible if not enter none: |6-x|+4=18 x= smaller value x= larger value thanksAnswer by psbhowmick(529)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!|6 - x| + 4 = 18 |6 - x| = 18 - 4 |6 - x| = 14 When x > 6, -(6 - x) = 14 i.e. x - 6 = 14 i.e. x = 20 When x < 6, (6 - x) = 14 i.e. 6 - x = 14 i.e. x = -8 Thus, there are two solutions of the equation: x = -8 and x = 20.
