Abs(x-2) > -1 (That is, the absolute value of x-2 is greater than -1.) Now I have always been accustomed to setting up two inequalities, one x-2 > -1 and the other x-2 < 1. When I do this, I don't get the write answer (2.412). Is the method I use with abs value wrong? I use this whenever there is an inequality sign or an equals with an abs value on one end like in the problem above. Thank you.
