Answer:

# x=16 or x=-4#

Explanation:

By definition and properties of absolute values, we may write this as

#(x-6)=10 or (x-6)=-10#

#therefore x=16 or x=-4#.

This would hence be graphed as 2 parallel vertical lines, one running through #16# on the x-axis and the other running through #-4# on the x-axis.
