Solve absolute value inequalities of the form /x/ < a

Solve absolute value inequalities of the form /x/ > a Example 1

Solve: ￨ x ￨ 3

[ ]

The solution set is {-3, 3}

-5 0-1-2-4 -3 4 3 2 1 5 Solving Absolute Value expression of the form ￨ x ￨ < a If a is a positive number, then ￨ x ￨ < a

is equivalent to –a < x< a Example 2:

Solve for m: ￨m – 6 ￨ < 2

Step 1: -a < x < a

Replace x with m - 6 and a with 2

-2 < m – 6 < 2 Example 2 continued

Solve the compound inequality

-2 < m – 6 < 2

-2 + 6 < m – 6 + 6 < 2 + 6

4 < m < 8

The solution set is (4, 8) and its graph is, Give it a try!

Solve ￨ x-2 ￨ 1 HINT

Before using an absolute value inequality property, you MUST MUST ISOLATE the absolute value ISOLATE the absolute value expressionexpression on one side of the inequality! Example 3:

Solve for x: ￨ 5x + 1 ￨ + 1 10 Give it a try!

Solve: ￨ 2x - 5 ￨ + 2 9 Example 4

Solve for x:

The absolute value of a number is always nonnegative and can never be less than –13. This inequality has NO solution! The solution set is { } or 0

12 x Give it a try!

Solve: 47

25 x Let ￨ x ￨ 3

The solution set includes all numbers who distance from 0 is 3 or more units. The graph of the solution set contains 3 and all points to the right of 3 on the number line or –3 and all points to the left of –3 on the number line..

The solution is ( - , -3] U [3, )

Form of ￨ x ￨ > a Solving Absolute Value Inequalities of the form ￨ x ￨ > a If a is a positive number, the ￨ x ￨ > a

is equivalent to x < -a OR x > a Example 5

Solve for y:

Step 1: Rewrite the inequalities without absolute value bars

y – 3 < -7 or y – 3 > 7Step 2: Solve the compound inequality

y < -4 or y > 10

Step 3: Graph the inequalities

Step 4: Write the solution set

(-∞, -4) U (10, ∞) Give it a try!

***Remember***

The absolute value of any number is always a nonnegative and thus is always great than -2. The inequality and the original inequality are true for all values of x. The solution set is {x/ x is a real number} or (-∞,∞) Example 7: Isolate the Absolute Value Expression!

Solve:

Step 1: Isolate the Absolute Value Expression
