I didn't get how to do the problem. In my book it says to choose a variable and write an absolute value inequality that represents each set of numbers. Here are the problems I had--

all real numbers less than 2 units from 0

all real numbers less than 1 unit from -4

I need to write an inequality for the two problems. Please explain how to do this. I need to know ASAP! This homework is due tomorrow 12/15.

I'm sorry I forgot to add that I know the answers I just don't know how to get them.

the first one is |x|< 2

the second one is |x+4|< 1

Does anybody know how to get the answer? I'm sorry I didn't say that earlier. :-)
