39 û [Return to Problems] (c) 3 - 2 z £ 5
We’ll need to be a little careful with solving the double inequality with this one, but other than
that it is pretty much identical to the previous two parts. -5 £ 3 - 2 z £ 5
-8 £ -2 z £ 2
4 ³ z ³ -1 In the final step don’t forget to switch the direction of the inequalities since we divided
everything by a negative number. The interval notation for this solution is [ -1, 4] .
[Return to Problems] Inequalities Involving > and ³
Once again let’s start off with a simple number example. p ³4
This says that whatever p is it must be at least a distance of 4 from the origin and so p must be in
one of the following two ranges, p £ -4 or p³4 Before giving the general solution we need to address a common mistake that students make with
these types of problems. Many students try to combine these into a single double inequality as
follows, -4 ³ p ³ 4 While this may seem to make sense we can’t stress enough that THIS IS NO...
