23x – 5 – 8 = 8 Add 8 to both sides to get 23x  5 = 8 + 8 23x  5 = 16 Divide both sides by two to get: 3x  5 = 16/2 3x  5 = 8 Finish solving from there.

All you have to do is divide both sides by 8: x+3/4<2/8 Then use property of absolute value to get x+3/4<±2/8

A furniture maker uses the specification 19.88 ≤ w ≤ 20.12 for the width w in inches of a desk drawer. Write the specification as an absolute value inequality. (1 point) w – 0.24 ≤ 20.12 w – 20 ≤ 0.12 w – 20 ≤ 0.24 w – 0.12 ≤ 20 Could you help me with this one?
