PEMDAS! First, distribute the 3 with what is within the absolute values. You should get.. |3y - 27| < 27 Absoluted value means the distance from zero. So, the next step is to find the absolute values. You should have.. 3y - 27 < 27 Then, you combine like terms. You should get.. 3y < 54 You want the variable on its own. Your final answer should be.. y < 18 !
3|y-9|<27 What is the answer?
