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.

asked by Sasha
  1. T = 27±3
    |T-27| <= 3

    Surely you can figure the range.
