Special Equations - Absolute Value and Interval Notation
Interval notation is a method for expressing a solution involving inequalities using brackets. We will graph the solution first on a number line which will help us determine the interval. When graphing : < or > uses an open circle ≤ or ≥ uses a closed circle Squeeze – when both inequality symbols point left. The solution is “squeezed” in between values Gap – when both inequality symbols point right. The solution has a “gap” in its graph
