    Absolute Value?

    Ugh beginning of the year and I already need help =/
    Anyways, the instructions said to use absolute value notation to define each interval (or pair of intervals) on the real number line.

    So the number line reads x≤4 and x≥10. How do I find the the absolute value notation? Step by step instructions would be helpful since I need to do the rest of it myself =P

    consider the x-value midway between x= 10 and x = 4 ...

    the distance between x and 7 is greater than or equal to 3

    |x-7| \ge 3
