2. anonymous

I got x>6, is that right?

We know either x−1 > 7 or x−1 < −7

6. pooja195

x−1>7(Possibility 1) x−1<−7(Possibility 2) Solve both of those for x

7. anonymous

i got 6 and -8

8. pooja195

Can you show me how because the numbers are right but the symbols are wrong

9. anonymous

x-1>7 x-1>-7 -1 -1 -1 -1 x>6 x>-8

10. pooja195

think of the two statements as x-1=7 x-1=-7 now solve for x

11. pooja195

For both equations u would ADD the one to both sides rember we are isolating x

12. pooja195

x-1>7 x-1>-7 +1 +1 +1 +1 x>? x>?

ohhh i see what i did wrong v.v

14. pooja195

thats good :) we are here to learn! :) now tell me what the answers are :)

15. anonymous

x>8 and x>-6

16. pooja195

good :) x>8 or x<−6
