 Question 66154: solve 2abs(x-3)+5=15 abs stands for absolute number solve abs(3x-5)greater and equal to 2Answer by Nate(3500)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!2*abs(x - 3) + 5 = 15 2*abs(x - 3) = 10 abs(x - 3) = 5 x - 3 = +- 5 x = 3 +- 5 x = 8 and x = -2 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ abs(3x - 5) >= 2 3x - 5 >= +-2 When you cross-a-negative over an inequality sign, you switch it. 3x - 5 >= 2 and 3x - 5 <= -2 3x >= 7 and 3x <= 3 x >= 7/3 and x <= 1 <=====(1]-----[7/3)=====>
