Answer:

#x = {-0.6909, 0.1455}#

Explanation:

Since the absolute value of #22x + 6# is 9.2, we know that either:

#22x + 6 = 9.2# or #22x + 6 = -9.2#

Therefore, solving these equations will give the two solutions to the original absolute value equation.

Equation 1:

#22x + 6 = 9.2#
#22x = 3.2#
#x = 0.1455#

Equation 2:

#22x + 6 = -9.2#
#22x = -15.2#
#x = -0.6909#

Therefore, x can either be 0.1455 or -0.6909.
