3. clearly not 2D. Just plug in y=2
|2+4| = |6| = 6 Bzzzt

#3 is also wrong. You forgot to divide by 2.
|2r| = 12, not |r| = 12

#4 is correct

4. The last one is correct, the first two are wrong.

Show me your steps so I can tell where you are going wrong.

9. #2
| y+4| <1
y+4 < 1 AND -y-4 < 1
y < -3 AND -y < 5
y < -3 AND y > -5

or as they wrote it, -5 < y < -3

10. #2. Remember that
|x| = x if x >= 0
|x| = -x if x < 0

So, you have
|y+4| < 1
so, either y+4 >= 0, meaning y >= -4
or y+4 < 0, meaning y < -4

If y >= -4
y+4 < 1
y < -3

If y < -4
-(y+4) < 1
-y-4 < 1
-5 < y
But also, we started with y < -4
So the solution is -5 < y < -3

Or, think of what |y+4| means. If y = -4, then y+4=0. So, |y+4| is the distance from y to -4. If that distance is less than 1, then you see the solution. Plot the value -4 on the number line. y must be less than 1 unit away from -4.
