## jollysailorbold 2 years ago Help me check my answer? Solve 3x - 4 ≤ 2 or 2x + 11 ≥ -1. A- {x | x ≤ 2} B- {x | -6 ≤ x ≤ 2} C- {all reals} I know that 3x - 4 ≤ 2 is x ≤ 2 and that 2x + 11 ≥ -1 is x ≥ -6 so would it be A?

1. blondie16

what is the | supposed to be between the 2 x's?

2. bbkzr31

Are there any more specific instructions? Are you looking for the domain or range?

3. jollysailorbold

No, that is all the information they give me.

4. jollysailorbold

and blondie, yes it is.

5. blondie16

i said what is it supposed to be? lol

6. bbkzr31

I think it is an or symbol

7. jollysailorbold

oh whoops, ahah i read it wrong. um, i dont really know. :(

8. jollysailorbold

all i know is that im supposed to pay attention to these parts of the inequality. x ≤ 2 -6 ≤ x ≤ 2

9. blondie16

well knowing what i know about inequalites... i think it would be B, because each answer you got you can write it like that

10. jollysailorbold

i thought that at first too, but i don't know :/ could you explain it?

11. blondie16

well why do you think it is A?

12. jollysailorbold

because 3x - 4 ≤ 2 equals x ≤ 2 and it said to solve either 3x - 4 ≤ 2 OR 2x + 11 ≥ -1 and both answers given(x ≤ 2 and -6 ≤ x ≤ 2) are correct.

13. jazzie

I believe the correct answer is B.

14. blondie16

gotta explain though lol thats what i think the answer is too but im having a hard time explaining it..
