Solve this equation if possible. `-3|6n-2|+5=8`
To solve the absolute value equation, we try and simplify the equation first:
`-3|6n-2|+5=8` move 5 to other side
`-3|6n-2|=3` divide both sides by -3
`|6n-2|=-1` factor 2 from left side
Unfortunately, since the left side of this equation is always positive and the right side of the equation is always negative, we see that the equation has no solution.
