3 |-8x| +8 = 80 When you remove the -8x from the absolute value bars, does it stay negative or become positive?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

3 |-8x| +8 = 80

3(8x)+8=80      negative sign will be removed

24x+8=80

24x=80-8

24x=72

x=72/24

x = 3

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
