since there is a modulus, it shows that the equation can either be negative or positive; hence we will get 2 answers

#### Explanation:

write out the 2 equations that are possible

from the first equation we get

thus, the solution from the graph should be when x is larger than 24 and when x is smaller than 8

For graphing, i would graph
