    if we had |x|=2 what could x possibly be?

    The magnitude of a real number without regard to its sign.

    right, so |x|=2 means x could be what two numbers?

    a 4 and a 0.8 ? their should be a negative.

    |x|=2 means that we ignore the sign of x - that is all

    |4|=4 that's not 2, so no

    |0.8|=0.8 also not 2, so not correct

    ok, so considering things like that |-6|=6, and |0.88|=0.88 what could |x|=2 possibly be?

    yes or, what is |-2| ?

    but if it in the box would it be postive?

  23. TuringTest

    yes, so |-2|=?

    2 ?

  25. TuringTest

    right, so |x|=2 means x could be what TWO numbers?

    Any thing which comes between | | < this becomes positive :)

    -2 and 2

    correct :)

    so for |x|=y that means either x=y or -x=y

    -x =y

    so you problem is |5x – 8| > 12 based on what we just discussed, |5x - 8|>12 means that 12> what two expressions?

  32. TuringTest

    rather, 5x-8 could be what two numbers?

    I still think it C cause that what I got, 0.8 and 4.

    it's not C

    |a|=b implies that either a=b or a=-b
