What is the solution set of |x + 5| > 1? x < –6 or x > 6 x < –4 or x > –4 x < –4 or x > 6 x < –6 or x > –4

OpenStudy (anonymous):

solve for x like you normally would pretend that the > is an = sign

OpenStudy (anonymous):

its the second one x > -4

OpenStudy (anonymous):

you would drop the two bars then subtract five from one

OpenStudy (anonymous):

and you get -4

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I know how to do it I just want to make sure which one is the correct answer since I got: x < –6 or x > –4

OpenStudy (anonymous):

oh it wouldnt be -6 i dont know how you got it but i got -4

OpenStudy (anonymous):

since the one isnt a negative but if the one was a negative then it would be -6

OpenStudy (anonymous):

So would it be x < –4 or x > –4 ?
