1.7 solving absolute value inequalities

  1. 1. Solving Absolute Value Inequalities Today’s objectives:1. I will solve absolute value inequalities.2. I will use absolute value inequalities to solve real-life problems.
  2. 2. Review of the Steps to Solve a Compound Inequality:● Example: 2 x + 3 > 2 and 5 x < 10● This is a conjunction because the two inequality statements are joined by the word “and”.● You must solve each part of the inequality.● The graph of the solution of the conjunction is the intersection of the two inequalities. Both conditions of the inequalities must be met. ● In other words, the solution is wherever the two inequalities overlap. ● If the solution does not overlap, there is no solution.
  3. 3. Review of the Steps to Solve a Compound Inequality:● Example: 3 x ≤ 15 or -2x +1 ≥ 0● This is a disjunction because the two inequality statements are joined by the word “or”.● You must solve each part of the inequality.● The graph of the solution of the disjunction is the union of the two inequalities. Only one condition of the inequality must be met. ● In other words, the solution will include each of the graphed lines. The graphs can go in opposite directions or towards each other, thus overlapping. ● If the inequalities do overlap, the solution is all reals.
  4. 4. “and’’ Statements can be Written in Two Different Ways● 1. 8 < m + 6 < 14● 2. 8 < m+6 and m+6 < 14These inequalities can be solved using two methods.
  5. 5. Method OneExample : 8 < m + 6 < 14 Rewrite the compound inequality using the word “and”, then solve each inequality. 8<m+6 and m + 6 < 14 2<m m<8 m >2 and m<8 2<m<8 Graph the solution: 2 8
  6. 6. Method TwoExample: 8 < m + 6 < 14 To solve the inequality, isolate the variable by subtracting 6 from all 3 parts. 8 < m + 6 < 14 -6 -6 -6 2< m <8 Graph the solution. 2 8
  7. 7. ‘or’ StatementsExample: x - 1 > 2 or x + 3 < -1 x>3 x < -4 x < -4 or x >3 Graph the solution. -4 3
  8. 8. Solving an Absolute Value Inequality● Step 1: Rewrite the inequality as a conjunction or a disjunction. ● If you have a < or ≤ you are working with a conjunction or an ‘and’ statement. Remember: “Less thand” ● If you have a > or ≥ you are working with a disjunction or an ‘or’ statement. Remember: “Greator”● Step 2: In the second equation you must negate the right hand side and reverse the direction of the inequality sign.● Solve as a compound inequality.
  9. 9. Example 1: This is an ‘or’ statement.● |2x + 1| > 7 (Greator). Rewrite.● 2x + 1 >7 or 2x + 1 <-7 In the 2nd inequality, reverse the inequality sign and negate the● x > 3 or x < -4 right side value. Solve each inequality. Graph the solution. -4 3
  10. 10. Example 2: This is an ‘and’ statement.● |x -5|< 3 (Less thand).● x -5< 3 and x -5< 3 Rewrite.● x -5< 3 and x -5> -3 In the 2nd inequality, reverse the inequality sign and negate the right side value.● x < 8 and x > 2● 2<x<8 Solve each inequality. Graph the solution. 2 8
  11. 11. Solve and Graph● 1) 4m - 5 > 7 or 4m - 5 < - 9● 2) 3 < x - 2 < 7● 3) |y – 3| > 1● 4) |p + 2| < 6
