How do you graph and solve #abs[x-5} > 7#?
See a solution process below:
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, 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.
