## anonymous 4 years ago What is the solution set for |3x – 24| less than or equal to 27?

1. anonymous

$\left[ -3,21 \right]$

2. anonymous

these are my choices x greater than or equal to 1 or x less than or equal to 17 x less than or equal to –1 and x greater than or equal to 17 x less than or equal to 17 or x less than or equal to –17 x greater than or equal to –1 and x less than or equal to 17

3. precal

$\left| 3x-24 \right|\le27$ $-27\le3x-24\le27$ add 24 to both sides $-3\le3x\le51$ divide by 3 to both sides $-1\le x \le17$ this means all numbers from -1 to 17

or x is greater than or equal to -1 and 17 is greater than or equal to x
