A company did a quality check on all the packs of roasted almonds it manufactured. Each pack of roasted almonds is targeted to weigh 21.25 oz. A pack must weigh within 0.24 oz of the target weight to be accepted. What is the range of rejected masses, x, for the manufactured roasted almonds? x < 21.01 or x > 21.49 because |x - 0.24| + 21.25 > 0 x < 21.25 or x > 21.49 because |x - 21.25| > 0.24 x < 21.01 or x > 21.49 because |x - 21.25| > 0.24 x < 21.25 or x > 21.49 because |x - 0.24| + 21.25 > 0

    Draw a number line and make sure 21.25 is labeled on it |dw:1434586836395:dw|

    the accepted range is within 0.24 oz so add 0.24 to 21.25 to get 21.49 |dw:1434586879589:dw|

    subtract 0.24 from 21.25 to get 21.01 |dw:1434586898947:dw|

    In general, let's call T the target we want to hit In this case, T = 21.25

    E is the accepted error E = 0.24 in this case

    The rejected range will be found by solving |x-T| > E where x is any random item's mass

    The accepted range can be found by solving \(\Large |x-T| \le E\)

    which basically boils down to \[\Large T - E \le x \le T+E\]
