Answer:

Solve equation with absolute expression |4x - 2| > 22

Explanation:

Decompose the equation in 2 parts:
a. (4x - 2) > 22
4x > 24 --> #x > 24/4 = 6#
b.- (4x - 2) > 22
-4x + 2 > 22 --> -4x > 22 - 2 = 20
-4x > 20 --> x < 20/-4 = - 5
Finally: x < -5 and x > 6
Answer by open intervals: (-infinity, -5) and (6, +infinity).
