Answer:

The solution is #x in (5, 13)#

Explanation:

There are #2# solutions for Inequalities with absolute values

#|x-4|<9#

#x-4<9# and #-x+4<9#

Therefore,

#x<13# and #x>5#

The solutions are

#S_1= x in (-oo,13)#

and #S_2= x in (5,+oo) #

The solution

#S= S_1 nn S_2#

#S=x in (5, 13)#

See the graph below
