Solutions to Assignment #1

1. (a) x 2  5 x  6  0
Since x 2  5 x  6  ( x  1)( x  6)  0 , we have
x 1  0 & x  6  0
Case 1:
or x  1
& x  6
x 1  0 & x  6  0
Case 2:
or x  1
& x  6 -------------- no solution
So the solution set is the closed interval [-6, 1].
(b) | 2 x  5 |  1

| 2 x  5 | 1 is equivalent to –1 < 2x + 5 < 1. From the first inequality we

have –6 < 2x or x > -3. From the second inequality we have 2x < -4 or x <
-2. So the solution set is (-3, -2).
