Need a little help understanding this one. Solve the absolute value inequality. |2x + 6| ≥ 8

OpenStudy (chihiroasleaf):

can you tell me what do you know about absolute value? :)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

it comes out the same

OpenStudy (anonymous):

2x+6 is greater than or equal to 8

OpenStudy (anonymous):

but then I get stuck from there

OpenStudy (chihiroasleaf):

$|x| = \left\{ \begin{array}{lr} x & : x \ge 0 \\ -x & : x < 0 \end{array} \right.$ so if $\large |2x+6| \ge 8$ $\Leftrightarrow -\left(2x+6\right) \ge 8 \Leftrightarrow \left(2x+6\right) \ge -8$ or $\Leftrightarrow \left(2x+6\right) \ge 8$

OpenStudy (chihiroasleaf):

in general if $|x| < a \Leftrightarrow -a<x<a$ $$|x| >a \Leftrightarrow x<-a$$ or $$x>a$$
