4.A quality control inspector is in charge of inspecting drill bits that are produced on an assembly line. The diameter of a drill bit can be modeled by the equation |x − 0.525| = 0.01. Show your work in solving the equation to determine the minimum and maximum diameters of the drill bits.

    just boils down to two equations x - 0.525 = .01 and x-0.525 =-.01

    |x| = a means x=a and x=-a

    just add 0.525 to both sides of the equations

    x - 0.525 = .01 +0.525 + 0.525 x = -01 + 0.525

    x-0.525=0.01 x-0.525= -0.01 +0.525 +0.525 x= 0.535 x= 0.515 Right?
