2|x - 1| - 4 = -2

distribute that 2 to the X - 1

2X - 2 - 4 = - 2

2X - 6 = - 2

2X = 4

X = 2

========D then. Check

2(2 - 1) - 4 = - 2

4 - 2 - 4 = - 2

2 - 4 = - 2

- 2 = - 2

=========Checks.

Looking at this problem from the absolute value indication yields an answer that is 0. Which is b. So, you know best if those are absolute value indicators or just parentheses.

2|x - 1| - 4 = -2
