$∣∣∣∣∣ 25 (x−2)∣∣∣∣∣ +4=1⇔∣∣∣∣∣ 25 (x−2)∣∣∣∣∣ =-3 $
Recall that an absolute value expression **cannot** be negative. Therefore, the given function has *no solutions.* Let's also verify our conclusion by graphing. The left-hand side of the equation can be expressed as the absolute value function $f(x)=∣∣∣ 25 (x−2)∣∣∣ .$ We'll draw its graph.

The solutions to the equation would be the $x-$coordinates of the points on the graph that whose $y-$coordinate is $-3.$

As we can see above, there is no point on the graph whose $y-$coordinate is $-3.$ Therefore, the equation has *no solutions.*
