For example, 8x + 39 ? 0 when x ? -4.875 2x^2 + 7x + 5 ? 0 for x ? -2.5 or x ? -1 We need to consider the equality (note: since the question is = 25, it is an equality, not an inequality) from the views of the first and second requirement sets. Now we consider the following equations. [x < -4.875] $2*(2x^{2}+7x+5)-(8x+39)=25$ [-4.875 < x ? -2.5 OR x ? -1] $2*(2x^{2}+7x+5)+(8x+39)=25$ [-2.5 < x < -1] $-2*(2x^{2}+7x+5)+(8x+39)=25$ Now that we have reduce the problem to simpler equalities (i.e., does not include absolute values) we can solve the readily. After doing that, check if the solutions fit within the given range. If they do, then you have your solution Hope that helps!
