  • algebra 1 - ,

    for |4-3w|>8

  • algebra 1 - ,

    Here would be the correct solution ...

    4-3w > 8 OR -4 + 3w > 8
    -3w > 4 OR 3w > 12
    w < -4/3 OR w > 4

    You didn't state what Paul had said.

  • algebra 1 - ,

    thats what he had for an answer but he thinks a reasonable answer is w= -3 why though? and why is it incorrect?

  • algebra 1 - ,

    w = -3 is a "reasonable" answer because it satisfies the original inequation, and it falls within the domain of my solution.
    There are an infinite number of reasonable answers.

    check:
    if w = -3
    LS = |4 - 3(-3)|
    = |4+9|
    = 13
    Is 13 > 8 ??? YES, so w = -3 is one of the infinite number of solutions.
