Answer:

The solutions are # k in (-oo, -3/2] uu[9/2, +oo)#

Explanation:

This is an inequality with absolute values.

#|2/3k-1|>=2#

The solutions are obtained as follows :

#{(2/3k-1>=2),(-2/3k+1>=2):}#

#<=>#, #{(2/3k>=3),(2/3k<=-1):}#

#<=>#, #{(k>=9/2),(k<=-3/2):}#

The solutions are

# k in (-oo, -3/2] uu[9/2, +oo)#
