 Question 568278: absolute value l -10-10a l < 60 (the l are the absolute value signs) I know the answer is a<5 and a>-7. I just don't know how to get that answer. Thank you! Click here to see answer by stanbon(57361)

 Question 568353: y= (x+4)-(x+1) the (brackets) are supposed to be the absolute value bar lines i understand how to get a resulting graph by graphing both vectors and adding the y values from left to right and then plotting the points. my question is what is the resulting graph supposed to tell you? i'm confused because i don't really get how to read the graph i have worked out that the resulting graph looks like a rigid S shape from using an algebraic method for x<-2 y= -(x+2) +(x+1) = -x-2+x+1 y=-1 for -2 y=x+2+x+1 y=2x+3 for x>-1 y=x+2-x-1 y=1 if i graph these 3 equations, i will get the same resulting graph. does it mean the points on the resulting graph are the solutions? thanks in advance.
