Please help me to Evaluate this expression and explain each step in words.
If x = 4, what is the value of 2|3x-16|
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
2|3x-16| means that the we need to take the absolute value of 3x-16 and then multiply by 2.
The absolute value is always zero or a positive number, thus we should the negative sign for the answer if any.
Thus If x=4, then 2|3(4)-16| = 2|-4| = 2*4 = 8
Thus, for x =4, then the solution to the equation is 8.
