The temperature of an enclosure for a pet snake should be about 27°C, give or take 3°C. (show your work)
a) What absolute value expression can be used to represent this situation?
b) Use the expression to determine the temperature range the enclosure should have.

1. Steve

T = 27±3
|T-27| <= 3

Surely you can figure the range.

2. Sasha

So answer to b would be 24?
