 Linear inequalities with absolute values 2010-12-01 From ryan:Good day! We we're given this assignment in algebra concerning linear inequalities with absolute value. In this number I'm confused how to isolate the absolute value, considering there is a variable in the absolute value and there is a variable in the outside. 2+5 |4-3t|+t ≤ -3-4tAnswered by Penny Nom. |ax+b| = cx + d 2005-03-22 From Angel:|ax+b| = cx + d how to show sometimes the above has 2 roots, sometimes 1 root and sometimes no roots. Hopelessly lost on how to start... Answered by Penny Nom. An ineqlality with absolute values 2004-07-05 From Uneeza:abs(x2 - 4x) > 3Answered by Claude Tardif. |x+3| = -15x 2003-07-19 From Nathan:Without the use of trial and error, is there a way of solving for x where |x + 3| = -15x? I know that x = -0.1875, but how do I find whether x + 3 is positive or not if I did not have this information (In other words, how would I solve whether the x-value was -3 or less, or if it was more than -3)?Answered by Claude Tardif and Penny Nom. | n + 4 | + | 3 - 2n | = 16 2002-05-24 From Randall:I don't seem to be able to solve this: | n + 4 | + | 3 - 2n | = 16 Answered by Penny Nom. Inequalities and absolute values 1999-12-07 From Austin Cline:Solve for x: The absolute value of x-1 is less than or equal to the absolute value of x-2Answered by Harley Weston.
