# How do you solve and graph #abs(p+2)>7#?

##### 1 Answer

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

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.

Subtract

Or

To graph this we will draw a vertical lines at

The lines will be dashed lines because the inequality operators do not contain **"or equal to"** clauses.

We will shade to the left and right side of the lines because the inequality operator contains **"less than"** and **"greater than"** clauses respectively:
