E. 9/5 < t < 14/5


if we put t=8/5 which is included in option A-D
then inequality doesnt hold

for E again value is greater than defined range 0 < |5t − 8| < 1

I m not getting the answer
Could any one help!!

Bunuel
is everything right with the Question??

D. 7/5 < t < 9/5
E. 9/5 < t < 14/5


Solve for the inequality \(0 < |5t − 8| < 1\)

\(|5t − 8| > 0 \implies t \neq \frac{8}{5}\)

\(|5t − 8| < 1 \implies -1 < 5t-8 < 1 \implies 7 < 5t < 9 \implies \frac{7}{5} < t < \frac{9}{5}\)

It seems that there is no answer satisfied the inequality.

The answer will be D if the condition \(0 < |5t − 8|\) doesn't exist in the inequality.

Whenever we have modulus of this kind, the value inside MOD will be NEGATIVE and positive both, so a range will take 0 also unless specified..

Here 5t-8 will be NEGATIVE , -1, at 7/5 and POSITIVE,1, at 9/5..
And 0 at 8/5

So the range becomes 7/5 to 9/5..
However it should not consist of 8/5..
And ans should be 7/5<T<9/5, where T is not equal to 8/5..

|5t-8| < 1 or |5t-8| >0

Solving these we get,
\(t<\frac{9}{5}\) or \(t>\frac{7}{5}\) for the first equation

The second equation yields \(t >\frac{8}{5}\) or \(\frac{8}{5}>t\), which is nonsensical.

Hence answer is D
