Is \(x>25?\)

1) \(|x-22|+|24-x|+|25-x|>4\)
X can be 0 or any negative number to fit in.
Rather take any value of x and it will fit in..
Insufficient

2) \(|21-x|+|22-x|+|24-x|<4\)
All values of X between 21 and 24 will give you 4, otherwise it will be more than 4..
Sufficient..
The inequality should be \(|21-x|+|22-x|+|24-x|\leq{4}\), there is no value of x otherwise that will give you <4..

Can you please give a more detailed explanation? I tried the 3 step method but got confused
Have you used some kind of innate logic which I may have overlooked?chetan2u
