Which of the following inequalities has a solution set that, when graphed on a number line, is a single, finite line segment?

A. x>=4 B. x^2>=4 C. x^3>=64 D. |x|>=4 E. |x|<=4

The best way to solve this problem is to do so using number lines. a) Infinite b) |x|>=2 which means x>=2 and x<=-2. Infinitite in opposite directions. c) x>=4 Infinite d) x>=4 and x<=-1 Infinite in opposite directions e) x<=4 and x>=-4 which means -4<=x<=4. !!!

Which of the following inequalities has a solution set that, when graphed on a number line, is a single, finite line segment?

A. x>=4 B. x^2>=4 C. x^3>=64 D. |x|>=4 E. |x|<=4

Running through the list, it's pretty easy to rule out A, B, C

Let's try D |x|>=4

x≥4 OR -x≥4 ===> x≤-4 In other words, x may be greater than four (going from left to infinity on the number line) or it could be less than negative four (going from right to negative infinity on the number line) INCORRECT

|x|<=4 x≤4 -x≤4 ===> x≥-4

So: -4≤x≤4 In other words, x could be between -4 and 4 on the number line.

Which of the following inequalities has a solution set that, when graphed on a number line, is a single, finite line segment?

A. x>=4 B. x^2>=4 C. x^3>=64 D. |x|>=4 E. |x|<=4

Checking Options:

A. x>=4 i.e. Single Line segment of Infinite length to the right of 4 on Number Line

B. x^2>=4 i.e. x>=2 or x <=-2 i.e. Two Line segment of Infinite length to the right of 2 and to the left of -2 on Number Line

C. x^3>=64 i.e. x >=4 i.e. Single Line segment of Infinite length to the right of 4 unit on Number Line

D. |x|>=4 i.e. x >=4 or x <=-4 i.e. Two Line segments of Infinite length to the right of 4 and left of -4 on Number Line

E. |x|<=4 i.e. Single Line segment of FINITE length from -4 to +4 on Number Line with length of 8 units

Answer: option E
