22-|y+14|=20
<=> 22-20 = |y+14|
<=> |y+14|= 2
<=> y+14 = 2 or -(y+14) = 2
<=> y=-12 or y=-16

Hey Fig,
In |y+14| should'nt it be just y which is unknown that could be either positive or negative instead of entire |y+14| being +ve or -ve. In other words the two equations should be

22-|y+14|=20

so |y+14|=2
or -y+14=2

or y+14=2

Is this correct or your version is correct. Pls explain.
Thanks
