# Inequalities question. No clue how to solve itWatch

Announcements

This is probably a standard, easy question for most people studying Maths on here so forgive me for asking. I just really need some help. It's been troubling me all day. I just can't get my head around solving inequalities.

The question is:

Can anybody show me how to tackle this, and what answer i should be getting, and how it's worked out. No clue myself

The Modulus sign confuses me especially. Let alone trying to solve the whole thing

Square both sides, rearrange and factorise into the product of two quadratic factors. Job done.

for the LHS

for the RHS

so you have 4 real intervals to solve inequality
1. x<=-3/2
2. -3/2<x<0
3, 0<=x<2
4. x>=2

f.e 1st case : x<=-3/2 so the original eq.

Considering that x<=-3/2, the solution here
