Re: If |3x - 2 + 4x| > 7, which of the following is a possible [#permalink]

Given the equation, the value of x has to be greater than 1 to satisfy the condition. So it could be 1 of the last 2 options. On plugging we would know it is the last option.

Since the given equation is inside a modulus. We have to take two cases while solving the equation 1st, 3x - 2 + 4x > 7 or, 7x>9 or,\(x > \frac{9}{7}\)

2nd, 3x - 2 + 4x < -7 (when multiplying both sides by -1 the inequality sign reverses) or, 7x< -5 or, \(x < \frac{-5}{7}\)

therefore, only option E falls withing the range since this is greater than \(\frac{9}{7}\)
