The student does not understand how to write and solve absolute value inequalities.
Instead, we will mostly use the geometric definition of the absolute value: The absolute value of a number measures its distance to the origin on the real number line. We are ready for our first inequality.
Obviously we are talking about the interval -5,5: What about the solutions to? On the left side, real numbers less than or equal to -2 qualify, on the right all real numbers greater than or equal to 2: We can write this interval notation as What is the geometric meaning of x-y?
Consider the example -4 Let's find the solutions to the inequality: Which real numbers are not more than 1 unit apart from 2? We're talking about the numbers in the interval [1,3]. What about the example Let's rewrite this as which we can translate into the quest for those numbers x whose distance to -1 is at least 3.
We first divide both sides by 2. Note that absolute values interact nicely with multiplication and division: Thus we obtain after simplification, we get the inequality asking the question, which numbers are less than 1 unit apart from So the original inequality has as its set of solutions the interval.ENCYCLICAL LETTER LAUDATO SI’ OF THE HOLY FATHER FRANCIS ON CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME.
1. “LAUDATO SI’, mi’ Signore” – “Praise be to you, my Lord”. When you’re solving an absolute-value inequality that’s greater than a number, you write your solutions as or statements. Take a look at the following example: |3 x – 2| > 7. You can rewrite this inequality as 3 x – 2 > 7 OR 3 x – 2.
Identifiers. Identifiers are sequences of characters used for naming variables, functions, new data types, and preprocessor macros. You can include letters, decimal digits, and the underscore character ‘_’ in identifiers.
The first character of an identifier cannot be a digit.
The absolute value of a value or expression describes its distance from 0, but it strips out information on the sign of the number or the direction of the distance. Absolute value is always positive or zero, and a positive absolute value could result from either a positive or a negative original value.
Find the mid-point between the extremes of the inequality and form the equality around that to reduce it to single inequality. the mid-point is so. When you’re solving an absolute-value inequality that’s greater than a number, you write your solutions as or statements.
Take a look at the following example: |3 x – 2| > 7. You can rewrite this inequality as 3 x – 2 > 7 OR 3 x – 2.
