hello

I tried to solve these two question about absolute value inequality but I stuck with x^2 and with number 2

please see this picture and solve this two for me, the answer of my teacher for 1) is (-∞,1] U [9,∞)

and for 2) is (-∞,∞)

is it right?

I tried the a way that a member learned me that here but I stuck

solve this in short way for me please!!! it takes me 3 days and I didn't find any solution :

Hi;

For 1) that should be

Hi;

Divide both sides by 3:

Now factor that.

Can you do the rest?

I think yes, maybe

x-9 ≥ 0 =>>>>>>>>> x≥9 then [9,∞)

and x-1≥0 =>>>> x≥1 then [1,∞)

sol : [9,∞] U [1,∞)

is that right?? but the answer of my teacher is different???,

by the way thank you for this link I study the factors and quadratic equations,

Hi;

The answer of your teacher is different because yours is not correct. Did you read the links thoroughly, they show how to do this.

I was study factoring and Quadratic Equations but I just started to study (Solving Quadratic Inequalities),

and I stuck with the first example,, I'll finish it...

I finish the first link math isfun.com

is the sol : : [9,∞] ∩ [1,∞)

not U?

and if yes why ∩????

is cause will be either the first interval or the second one??

please I need answers I get board from trying I have a lot of topics in maths to finish

Hi;

I do not use that set notation but I am getting:

The area you want is colored purple.

but how that can be? x<= 1??

if we put -3 in it will be |-3+3| , zero,, and that is wrong right?

how did you do that

That is correct. I think you should point that out to your teacher.

1) Find the zeros.

2) Plot them on the number line.

3) Pick a point or points to get the interval you want.

I'll show you what I did,,,

when (x-9) (x-1) ≥ 0

(x-9) = 0 , x=9 the interval is [9,∞) , test a value between this interval : "10" : 10^2 - 10*10 +9 ≥ 0 , +9 ≥ 0 and that is true!

(x-1) ≥ 0 x=1 the interval is [1,∞) , test a value between this interval : "2" : 2^2 - 10*2 +9 ≥ 0 , -7 ≥ 0 , and that is WRONG! so Switch this inequality and become : x ≤ 1 , the interval is : (-∞,1]

sol : (-∞,1] U [9,∞), except -3

is that ok? hehehe

I have not done any of these in 83 years, so forgive me, I am beyond rusty. That is how I would phrase it.

I try it, it is [9,∞)

and maybe (-∞,9], but I can't chose that one cause it is consist number 3 which make the denominator zero and I'll point this to the teacher,...

please can you give me the end of sol that you get it????
