How is this absolute value equation done?

| (e - π) |^2 = e + π

This is an absolute value equation. Don't we need to present two cases to solve for x?

I see my typo. The problem should be as follows:

| (e - πx) |^2 = e + π

The absolute value squared of the quantity
(e - πx) = e + π. Solve for x.

The absolute value squared of the quantity ;
(e - πx) = e + π. Solve for x.
and
-(e - πx) = e + π. Solve for x.
