# How do you graph and solve #abs[x-5} > 7#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, we can solve for

The absolute value function takes any term and transforms it to its non-negative form. Therefore, we must solve the term within the absolute value function for both its negative and positive equivalent.

Or

Or, in interval notation:

To graph this we will draw a vertical lines at

The lines will be dashed lines because the inequality operators

do not contain an **"or equal to"** clause.

We will shade to the left and right sides of the lines.
