# How do you graph and solve abs (5+x) <=20?

Apr 17, 2016

$x \in \left[- 25 , 15\right]$ In bold face,show the segment of the x-axis, representing the closed interval [-25, 15]. Here, $| 5 + x | \le 20$

#### Explanation:

$| 5 + x | \le 20$ is the combined inequality for the pair

$\pm \left(5 + x\right) \le 20$.

Separately, these are

$x \le 15 \mathmr{and} x \ge - 25$.
