Chapter 1.7, Problem 74E
To determine

## To solve: the absolute value inequality. Express the solution using interval notation and graph the solution set.

Expert Solution

x(5,5) .

### Explanation of Solution

Given:

The given inequality is |3x|<15 .

Concept used:

Properties of absolute value inequalities:

 Inequality Equivalent form Graph |x|c x<−c or c

Calculation:

The given inequalityis expressed as

|3x3|<153{divide both side by 3}|x|<5

According to the properties of absolute value inequalities, the given inequality is expressed as

5<x5i.ex(5,5) .

Hence,the solution set is x(5,5) .

The solution set of the inequality graphed on the number line.
