You order 1.5 pounds of turkey at a deli. You will accept the turkey if its weight is between 1.54 lb and 1.46 lb. What absolute value inequality describes the tolerance of the weight of the turkey?
Please help I am a bit confused, thank you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the general form is x  T <= E T = target value E = error you want the absolute value of the difference, xT, to be as small as possible. Ideally 0 The worst you're able to live with is E = 0.04 so yeah it should be x1.5 <= 0.04
