|4+2x|-3>

I know the answer is x>2 or x<-6

But I'm unsure how to solve it.

Thanks

**Steve**, Wednesday, February 13, 2013 at 3:01pmsince |x| = x if x >= 0, and -x if x<0, either

(4+2x) - 3 > 5 or

-(4+2x) - 3 > 5

so either

4+2x-3 > 5

2x+1 > 5

2x > 4

x > 2

or

-4-2x-3 > 5

-2x - 7 > 5

-2x > 12

x < -6
