# How do you find the intercepts and vertex for  y=-2|5x+8|+4?

Intercepts: $x = - \frac{6}{5}$ ; and $x = \frac{6}{5}$
−2|5x+8|+4 = 0 ; −2|5x+8| = -4 ; $| 5 x + 8 | = 2$ ; $+ \left(5 x + 8\right) = 2$ and $- \left(5 x + 8\right) = 2$ ;
$5 x = - 6$ ; $x = - \frac{6}{5}$ and $- 5 x = - 6$; $x = \frac{6}{5}$
