Are these right?!
Absolute value :

1. |x^2-2x+16|=8


3. |3x+2|+3=0
x= -5/3

  • Algebra2 -

    x^2 - 2x + 16 = 8 or x^2 - 2x + 16 = -8
    x^2 - 2x + 8 = 0 or x^2 - 2x + 24 = 0
    neither the first nor the second has a real solution.

    2. |3x-2| = 7
    3x-2=7 or 3x-2=-7
    3x=9 or 3x = -5
    x = 3 or x = -5/3

    |3x+2| = -3
    by its very definition, there cannot be a solution here.

    In the first problem it was suppose to be -16
    my mistake, but does it still g=have no solution?
