Subtract 5 from each side: -8|-2n| = -80 Divide each side by -8 |-2n| = 10 Since this is an absolute value equation, we need to setup two equations: -2n = 10 -2n = -10 Solving for the first one by dividing each side by -2, we get: n = -5 Solving for the second one by dividing each side by -2, we get: n = 5
