To begin, take 16 away from either side of the equation.

$\left|x+2\right|+16-16=14-16$

$\left|x+2\right|+0=-2$

$\left|x+2\right|=-2$

By definition of the absolute value function the result of the function will always be greater than or equal to $0$. This means that there is no answer to this issue, or the solution set is empty - $x=\{\varnothing \}$
