| m + 8| = 16

m + 8 = 16 or m + 8 = -16

m = 8 or m = -24

m + 8 = 16 or m + 8 = -16

m = 8 or m = -24

2(x - 4) - 6(2x - 3) = 0

2x - 8 - 12x + 18 = 0

-10x = -10

x = 1

The correct answer is D. x = 1

2x - 8 - 12x + 18 = 0

-10x = -10

x = 1

The correct answer is D. x = 1

|3u - 18| = 0

3u - 18 = 0

3u = 18

u = 18/3 = 6

3u - 18 = 0

3u = 18

u = 18/3 = 6

|2y - 2| = y

squared both sides the result is:

(2y - 2)^2 = y^2

4y^2 - 8y + 4 = y^2

3y^2 - 8y + 4 = 0

(y - 2)(3y - 2) = 0

y = 2 or y = 2/3

squared both sides the result is:

(2y - 2)^2 = y^2

4y^2 - 8y + 4 = y^2

3y^2 - 8y + 4 = 0

(y - 2)(3y - 2) = 0

y = 2 or y = 2/3
