Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Pleaseeee helpppp!!!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know the first steps to solve the inequality?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First step, is to isolate the absolute value side!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How do u exactly do that

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0By removing everything that's not INSIDE the absolute value sign on the left side of the inequality!

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So u remove the 9 < 1?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just the 9 because the 1 is on the right side of the inequality. When I say inequality i mean the symbol in the middle that looks like this: <

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do do I cross out the 9?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No you can't just make the 9 disappear into nothing.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to add it to both sides!

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So what do we do with the 9 to get rid of it?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to add 9 to the left side and the right side. x10  9 < 1 + 9 +9

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0By adding the opposite of 9 you can cancel it out with itself!

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes! It would be 8 on the right side!

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now do we work within the absolute value on the left side?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now we have x10 < 8 and now the absolute value sign has been isolated!

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes but you have to do something special to solve that absolute value. Do you know what's next?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so now what's the next step

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now you have to break the absolute value into "cases".

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How will we do that?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x10 < 8 is broken down into x10 < 8 and x10 > 8dw:1440964722548:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Notice how i didn't include the absolute value signs, and how the second one has the negative 8!!

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why does it turn to 8?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For the first "case" just rewrite the original problem. For the second "case" make everything on the right the opposite sign AND flip the inequality sign!

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See how < became > on the second one?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0U always have to do that?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We do this in order to solve absolute value inequalities. And yes you always have to do that.

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now do we subtract the x10

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But ONLY if you have absolute values in your inequality!

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no just the 10 leave the x where it is

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So for the next step the x disappears?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No we're trying to find what X is. Oh and by the way the 2 cases have nothing to do with each other!

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They are 2 different problems now

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought the new sign was >

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Only on the second case!

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We are working with the first case where everything stays the same!

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you do the second case you get x10 > 8 +10 +10 x > 2

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now we have the first case: x < 18 and the second case: x > 2

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We're still doing the first case right

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No the first and second ones are right there

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First Case: x < 18 Second case: x > 2

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See how they both have x? Couldn't we just write it like this then: 2 < x < 18 And that's your compound inequality!
