# Solve for x: 3|x - 3| + 2 = 14

**Solution: **

We will find the value of x which satisfies the equation 3|x - 3| + 2 = 14.

**Step 1: **Subtract 2 from both sides.

3|x - 3| = 12

**Step 2: **Divide both sides by 3.

|x - 3| = 4

As we can see that the equation has an absolute value, we will have two values x.

**Step 3: **Put equations equal to 4 and - 4 to get the values.

x - 3 = 4 or x = 3 = - 4

**Step 4: **By solving for x, we get

x = 4 + 3 or x = - 4 + 3

x = 7 or x = - 1

## Solve for x: 3|x - 3| + 2 = 14

**Summary:**

The solution for x are 7 or - 1 for the equation 3|x - 3| + 2 = 14.
