Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2In order to properly graph the absolute value inequality, you must first solve for x. The hint I gave you shows a mathematical statement equivalent to the given statement that allows you to solve for x, which in turn, will enable you to properly graph the inequality.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, so 2x + 1 ≤ 5. First, would i subtract one from each side?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It's much easier to solve it as just one compound inequality: 5 ≤ 2x + 1 ≤ 5 Subtract one from each side, then divide each side by two.
