Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Normally with this type of inequality, you would start by making sure that the absolute value signs (the two vertical lines) and the stuff that's inside of them are the only things to the left of the inequality sign. In this problem they are already isolated, so it saves you a step.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So your two equations are now: x>5 and x<2. To figure out the interval notation let's combine the two and make a graph.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It is kind of hard to put into words without a bunch of my crappy drawing skills, so I found this awesome website that puts it pretty simply. here is the link: http://www.coolmath.com/algebra/07solvinginequalities/03intervalnotation01 If you just read page one and a bit on page two you can message back and let me know if you understand.
