do you know how to solve \[|t-24|\le30\] for \(t\)?
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
would you subtract 24 from 30?

no
iwanttogotostanford

or add
anonymous
  • anonymous
you start with \[-30\le t-24\le 30\] then ADD \(24\) all the way across
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
what do you get?
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
t less than or equal to 50?
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
i mean 54
anonymous
  • anonymous
that is what you get on the right how about on the left?
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
do you always have to put the -30 there on the left when you are doing that to inequalities?
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
just for future reference
anonymous
  • anonymous
you don't always to do anything, but if you have \[|t-a|
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
oh ok so that goes with all inequalities?
anonymous
  • anonymous
all that look like the one you have, yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
inequalities with absolute value and "less than"
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
ok so i would have -6 less than or equal to T less than or equal to 54 ?

@Vocaloid could you help?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
yes, -6 <= t <= 54 now look at your answer choices and see which t value does not fit the inequality
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
-5? or would it be 0?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
nope, not quite -6 <= t <= 54 means that t must be between -6 and 54 (inclusive) so which of the answer choices is NOT between -6 and 54?
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
im not sure i sometimes forget if -10 is greater tham -6 or not....
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
remember the rule for negative numbers|dw:1443320186749:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
actually you are not alone it was not until fairly recently that mathematicians ordered the negative numbers so that \(-5<-4\) for example
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
oh ok thanks so I'm still a bit confused though on which one would fit that mold
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
so wouldn't it be -5???
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
nope, not -5 -5 is greater than -6 and less than 54, so -5 fits in the inequality (remember, we're looking for the one that DOESN'T fit the inequality)
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
oh yeah i forgot that part...
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
so it would be 54!
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
54 isn't one of the answer choices
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
no no no sorry
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
i typed wrong instead of 24, its 54 for one of the answer choices
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
well, 24 isn't the answer either 24 is greater than -6 and less than 54 keep trying :)
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
-10?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
yup, good! -10 is less than -6 so it doesn't fit the inequality
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
the answer is -10
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
oh darn no its -10
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
thanks that was a long process, thanks! Could i have help on another if i make a new question please?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
sure, tag me if you'd like
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
okay-thanks ill be making one now
