(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

y = |(x-2)(x-4)| and y = 6 -2x

find the exact values for which these two equation equal each other

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Right I got it down to

[tex]2 \pm \sqrt{2}[/tex] and [tex]4 \pm \sqrt{2}[/tex] and
