Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Well, yo can plug them in and try, but in general, whenever you see an absolute value inequality it means that the number will be constriend between two poiunts or NOT between those two points.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2To solve an equation of the form \(X = k\) where X is an expression with a variable and k is a nonnegative number, solve the compound equation X = k or X = k

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3x < k means x will be between k and k. x > k means x will be outside k and k.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Your expression with a variable is simply y. Set y equal to the number. Then set y equal to the negative of the number. Separate the equations with the word "or". That is the solution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So, based on all that, do you see the answer(s)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Sorry. I misread the problem as as equation, y = 6. Follow @e.mccormick as to how to find the answer the question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what do you mean by x > k means x will be outside k and k.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Because it is an inequality, y will be above or below some value. However, because y is in an absolute value, it means it is like being above or below two values: x > k means: x > k AND x > k So if k is say 3, the line graph would be: dw:1440444499449:dw So it is OUTSIDE the 3 to 3 range.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y= y with a positive sign this means that 7=7 and 7=7 get it? 3=3 and 3=3. Now try.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3If I did x<3, it would be: dw:1440444653222:dw That is inside...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Or between. That is what I meant by it is between the numbers or outside those numbers. The > or < tells you which.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3OK. Well, lets do try and see. y > 6 y = –7 y = –1 y = 3 y = 9 If you put 7 in place of y, is that true? If yes, then that is a valid answer. If no, it is not. Then repeat with 1, 3, and 9.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yes, 9 > 6 is true. However, there is another.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.33 > 6 3 > 6 Three is greater than six... no, that is false.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Remember how the absolute value works.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yes. y > 6 means values outside the range of 6 to 6 are true. So values more than 6 and les than 6 would satisfy that. 7 is less than 6, so it is true.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3IF it had been y < 6, it would have been the other two. But for y > 6 it is A and D.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I hope that makes more sense now.
