Solve this inequality.

|k|>2.5

• Math -

|k| > 2.5
k > 2.5
or
k > -2.5

• Math -

hmm
agree with k>2.5
However when you multiply or divide an ineqality by a negative, change the arrow direction
-k >2.5
so
k < -2.5 in other words to the left on number line

oh hahaha yeah, damon is right. i was thinking like, -3.5 > -2.5 and it's not.

thanks
