Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the vertical lines around 2x6 means the absolute value of 2x  6, whether the expression is negative or positive this gives us 2 inequalities: 2x  6 < 4 and 2x  6 > 4 can you solve these?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First of all, we can eliminate two choices because the inequality is simply a "less than" sign. This means we don't include the very last number, which means an open circle is needed. I suggest temporarily changing the sign to an equal sign to solve for the highest and lowest x values since the answer is everything in between them (and not the end points as just discussed).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Also a good practice is to see what the different equations are for each graph. There is one tiny difference between the equations for graphs C and D, do you know what it is? (And yes you are correct)
