no one is allowed to give out answers @vivek4607 coocoobird

- Luigi0210

@vivek4607 no giving away answers, like nin stated

- terenzreignz

...
it would be useful to point out that you, @dirtydan667 , are not currently dealing with an equation, but rather, an inequality, and a STRICT inequality, at that (>, not \(\ge\))

- anonymous

it would be x-6y (i think :P)

- anonymous

um um um um um um um um im scured

- anonymous

@nincompoop ...dude...she just asked for the solution...not for the how solution comes....better read the question first....:)

- anonymous

ohk...thanx for reminding me...:)

wait im confused what is the awnsere

@dirtydan667
Listen up...
to know if a point is a solution of an equation (or an inequality) just plug everything in and see if it all checks out.
Here's an example... try the point \((\color{red}3,\color{blue}6) \)
\[\Large \color{blue}y > |\color{red}x|- 6\]Plug in...
\[\Large \color{blue}6 > |\color{red}3| - 6\]
Simplify...
\[\Large 6 > -3\]
Which is true... so, the point \((\color{red}3,\color{blue}6) \) IS a solution. Now try with your actual choices.

- anonymous

y > |x| - 6
y+6>|X|
y+6=x OR y+6=-x
y+6=x or -y-6=x
by putting all the values of x and y given u can find out ur answer

- anonymous

so A ?

- anonymous

u can check it....:)

- terenzreignz

so B?
or maybe even C?
Test it.

- nincompoop

try to SOLVE it

- nincompoop

you don't want to be banned for soliciting answers now

- anonymous

so it is a 1>-1

- terenzreignz

Where did that come from? D:

- anonymous

i enterd the points from A

- terenzreignz

Show.

- anonymous

kk one sec

- nincompoop

eyes are unto you, coocoobird, you better show your solution or just close this post and move on

- anonymous

um ok first i enterd the points in a then did the || then i got 1>-1

- anonymous

whats so hard to beileve

- nincompoop

eh? that's not a solution :) if you've read terenz' example, then you would do the same format for your solution. c'mon, man, you can do thisâ€¦. this question is beneath your ability

- anonymous

no its not the soultuion but it means a is correct

- nincompoop

I wouldn't know until you start plugging in values

- DebbieG

No @vivek, y+6>|X| is NOT equivalent to y+6=x OR y+6=-x
An abs value inequality does not become a compound equality.
think about what is means that: y+6>|X| It means that the DISTANCE of X from 0 is less than y+6. Therefore:
-(y+6)
