Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2since there is an absolute value sign you have to set up 2 equations.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2one that says: 4x + 3 ≥ 19 and one that says: 4x + 3 (lessthan / equal to)  19

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you have to set up 2 equations because there is an absolute value sign

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2after that you solve for x. so start with the positive 19 equation when you solve for x what will you get.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, now you got that one.. so just by looking at the answers you know its either a/d now do the second equation. what do you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes which is also just 5.5 okay and so now you definitely know its either a/d okay the difference between a and d is that the middle word in a is "and" and the middle word in "d" is or.. do you know the difference between those?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2okay since you had the absolute value sign i told you before that you had to make two equations. and when you have to make two equations that means both of those answers need to be "included" so it would be "and". do you understand why?
