since there is an absolute value sign you have to set up 2 equations.

you have to set up 2 equations because there is an absolute value sign

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

SmokeysTheNameBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
yes, 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?

x ≤ (5.5/1)?
 one year ago

SmokeysTheNameBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
yes 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?

SmokeysTheNameBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
okay 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?

do you understand why now* i should say
