    Does anyone know how to do the following questions?

    Sketch the graph of y= |x-250|-10

    Solve the inequality |x-250| < 10

    thanks

    For the graph imagine the graph of |x|. It's a V shape with a gradient of one that passes through the origin and y is equal to or greater than 0. Then apply graph transformations. The |x-250| functions in a similar way to f(x-250) would, it indicates a shift right 250 units. Then the -10 means you move the graph 10 units down.

    For the inequality you need to consider that |x-250|<10 means that both (x-250)<10 and (250-x)<10.

    Sketch the graph of y=x-250, reflect the part of the graph where y<0 in the x axis, then translate the the whole graph down by 10.

    For the inequality, you could draw the graphs of y=|x-250| and y=10, find the points of intersection and give the values of x where the inequality is satisfied.
