Question

Describe all numbers x that are at a distance of 5 from the number 8. Express this using absolute value notation.

The answer field below uses the symbol mode option. That lets you type in a vertical bar | to represent absolute values. Also, when you type in  <  and then =, the symbol mode will automatically convert that to  ≤ . In the same way, if you type in  >  and then =, the symbol mode will automatically convert that to  ≥.
