    little late
    (8W+2)+2= 0
    (8W+2)= -2
    8W= -4
    W= -4/8
    W= 0.5
    I think

    yup

    the only I see that one MIGHT be able to call wrong is that generally, you would use the associative property to remove paranthesis and combine terms when it is convenient first (i.e., make it 8w +4 = 0), other than that, perfect explanation

    It's simple. The absolute quantity of 8w+2 is 8w+2. So....

    8w+2+2=0
    -4 -4
    8w=-4
    /8 /8
    w=-1/2

    |8w+2|=-2
    8w+2 belongs 2, -2
    I 8w+2=2
    8w=0
    w=0
    II 8w+2=-2
    8w=-4
    w=-4:8
    w=-0.5
    if is in module 8w+2:thumb:

    |8w+2| = -2 has no answer because the left side of the equation is ALWAYS greater than or equal to 0. Hence the solution set is the empty set.

    door, akeysis

    i think you need to solve it
    everything adds up to 12w=0 then need to flip the 12 over so it becomes -12 so it looks like this..

    w=-12

    12w=0 is an impossible question

    12w= 0 equals this
    w = 0/12 ... fail


    the real answer was above

    - 1/2

    |8w+2|+2=0
    2I4w+1I=-2/2
    4w+1=-1
    4w=-1+(-1)
    4w=-2/4
    w=-0,5
