## Algebra: A Combined Approach (4th Edition)

Using the absolute property rules, we can solve the problem by removing the bars and solving the equation. $-6|x|+44=-10$ $-6x+44=-10$ $-6x=-10-44$ $-6x=-54$ $x=-54/-6$ $x=9$ Since this is an absolute value equation, we must the positives and negatives of the number. So the solution is {9,-9}.
