write the verbal sentence as an inequality and solve the inequality. (this has to do with absolute value inequalities)

i think the answer is (x8)<14
the parentheses stand for the absolute value sign

algebra  helper, Friday, January 14, 2011 at 3:31pm
 x  8  < 14
this means
x  8 < 14
x < 22
x + 8 < 14
x < 6
x > 6
therefore,
6 < x < 22
