A bottling company is filling 32 oz bottles of water. A bottle is accepted if it contains between 32.85 and 31.15 oz of water. What absolute value inequality describes the tolerance of volume of water in the bottle?

  • Algebra 2 -

    midway between the two extremes is (32.85+31.15)/2 = 32.00

    So, |x-32.00| <= 0.85
