    (I'm stuck on the question I put a box around)

    I'm unsure how to use my previous answer (also in image) to answer this "hence" question

    There is one key difference between  |x-9| \mathrm{and} |8^x - 9| - a substitution.. (you could swap out the x's for ys in your first answer if it helps.. for the second part, that is).

    Yes you'll see that fits into 2 < 8^x < 16 so it must be correct
