2), we can write the last inequality as −6 < x − 2 < 6, or −6 + 2 < x < 6 + 2, or −4 < x < 8. This shows that x lies between −4 and 8. In terms of intervals discussed in the last section, this can be written as (−4, 8). As another example, consider the absolute value inequality |x − 2| ≥ 6 for solving for x. 2), we may write the last inequality as x − 2 ≤ −6 or x − 2 ≥ 6. This implies that the solution is x ≤ −4 or x ≥ 8. In terms of the intervals discussed in the last section, these can be written as (−∞, −4] and [8, ∞).

Then the former will be called the horizontal axis or the x-axis and the latter will be called the vertical axis or the y-axis. 1. As can be seen, the two axes divide the plane into four areas called quadrants. It is important to note that the signs of the values taken by the variables (x and y) are different in different quadrants. Notice that the axes cross each other at point 0, and this point is called the origin. Both variables have positive signs in the first quadrant and have negative signs in the third quadrant.

3(A). 3(A), respectively. Sometimes we are required to use two variables in a single inequality. For example, consider the inequality x + y < 1. We know that when y = 0, x < 1. This gives the values that x can take: all values on the horizontal axis below 1. Similarly, if x = 0, y < 1, which gives the values that y can take: all values on the vertical line below 1. 3(B). If the inequality were x + y ≤ 1, then all combinations of x and y on and below the white line would be the set of solutions to this inequality.
