Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, but if i look at the answer choices, 26 is not on one of the answer choices

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, you have to solve for the intervals of the shaded area if the absolute value is greater than a number, you will get an OR statement with two solution intervals... The absolute value function is just a distance from zero, if this distance is greater than, you will have two solutions Like if absolute value of x is greater than 2, you will get x>2 OR x <2, both those are the solutions for all distances greater than 2 from zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if i I2x+10I>26 and subtract 10 on both sides it will give me I2xI>16 And then divide both sides by 2 i will get IxI>8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If the absolute value is Less Than some value, say 'a', the solution will be in the form of an AND statement a < abs( function) < +a single solution region between + and  a
