i would like someone to walk me through how to solve these types of equations.

2. sagesstillneedtolearn

|2x+1| > 6 = -3 ?

|2x+1|>6+3 we know that |x|>a(a is a constant) is nothing but -a<x<a. so here it is -9<2x+1<9 then -10<2x<8 this implies -5<x<4.This is the range of x which satisfies the given inequality.

5. Chlorophyll

Can you simplify it?

6. sagesstillneedtolearn

|2x+1| > 9

7. sagesstillneedtolearn

correct?

8. Chlorophyll

The absolute value always have 2 cases: positive value 2x+1 > 9 Can you solve it?

9. sagesstillneedtolearn

-4 ; 4 ?

10. Chlorophyll

2x+1 > 9 x > (9 -1)/2 = 8/2 = 4

11. Chlorophyll

second case is negative value, pay attention that the direction changed: 2x+1 < -9

12. sagesstillneedtolearn

im a bit confused, sorry.

13. sagesstillneedtolearn

alright, thankyou very much :D i'll be back later with more equations to practice with.
