Posted from my mobile device

$$3|2 − x|^2 − 7|x − 2| = 6$$
$$3|x-2|^2 - 7|x-2| - 6 = 0$$
$$(3|x-2|+2)(|x-2|-3) = 0$$
$$3|x-2| + 2 = 0$$ or $$|x-2| = 3$$.
Since we have $$|x-2|≥0$$ and $$3|x-2| + 2≥2>0$$, $$3|x-2| + 2 ≠ 0$$.

From $$|x-2| = 3$$, we have $$x - 2 = ±3$$.
$$x = 2 ± 3$$.
$$x = 5$$ or $$-1$$.
Thus the sum of solutions is $$5 + (-1) = 4$$.
