Homework Help: Algebra

Posted by Andrea on Monday, October 12, 2009 at 4:47pm.

The (absolute value) x-20 (absolute value) is less than or equal to 6. I did it first with six positive and got x is lesss than or equal to 26. Then I made the six negative and got x is less than or equal to 14. But this is impossible for these to both be true, right? How come my book says no solution isn't an answer? (It has 14 is less than or equal to x which is less than or equal to 26 as the answer). How did they get this?
