will anyone explain to me how to solve two step inequalities? it would be most appreciated.

they are called two step inequalities. ill give you an example

that makes no sense to me

I don't know :(

SOLVING AN ABSOLUTE INEQUALITY

lET X BE A VARIABLE OR AN ALGEBRATIC EXPRESSION AND LET A BE A REAL NUMBER SUCH A>0.

1. tHE SOLUTION OF [x]<a are all valuesof x that lie between -a and a. That's is.if [x] < a if and only if -a < x <a.

2 The soluion of [x] > a are all values of x that are less than -a or greater than a. That is [x] > a if and only x<-a or x>a.These rules are also valid if < is replaced by <and > is rep-laced by

>.
