    Like @asnaseer did, simplify this inequality. \(|2x-1|+6-6>9-6\\|2x-1|>3\) And now you may proceed to setting up two inequations.

    Do you know how to set up those inequations?

    2x-1>3 2x>4 x>2 -2x-1<-3 -2x<-2 x>1 Are these right?

    Although the negative one is wrong -------------------- \(2x-1<-3\\2x<-2\\x<\frac{-2}{2}\\x<-1\)

    Since the absolute value of \(2x-1\) must be greater than 3, \(2x-1\) could be in the negative side too, -4,-5,-6,-7 and so on, because when you take the absolute value of these, you get something greater than 3.
