 Question 565113: can you describe the graph of the solution of |2x+5|-1<3 after you solve it. please show work so i can understand thanksAnswer by stanbon(57967)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!can you describe the graph of the solution of |2x+5|-1<3 after you solve it. please show work so i can understand thanks ----------------------- |2x+5| < 4 ---- -4 < 2x+5 < 4 --- -9 < 2x < -1 --- -9/2 < x < -1/2 ---------------------- Draw a number line. Plot -9/2 and put a circle around the point. Plot -1/2 and put a circle around the point. Connect the points with a line segment. ------ That picture is the graph of the solutions. =============================================== Cheers, Stan H.
