The set of real numbers satisfying the given inequality is one or more intervals on the number line. Show the intervals on a number line.
|x + pi/2| > 1
The |x + pi/2| > 1 means what lies inside the absolute value bars is more than (x + pi/2) units from the origin.
The point (x + pi/2) lies either to the right of 1 or to the left of -1.
How do I show this on a number line?
Is there more algebra involved before plotting on the number line or am I reading too much into the problem?
