# How do you solve abs(x+4)>2?

Apr 28, 2017

$| a + b | \setminus > c$
Solving for either $a$ or $b$ as following:

• $a + b \setminus < - c$
• $a + b \setminus > c$

Now applying this to the equation you are given...
$| x + 4 | \setminus > 2$

• $x + 4 \setminus > 2$
• $x + 4 \setminus < - 2$

Simplifying...

• $x \setminus > - 2$
• $x \setminus < - 6$
