4-56.

Multiple Choice: Which of the points below is a solution to $y < | x - 3 |$? Homework Help ✎

1. (2, 1)

2. (−4, 5)

3. (−2, 8)

4. (0, 3)

Test each point in the inequality to see if it makes the inequality true.

1 < |2 − 3|
1 < |−1|
1 < 1

The resulting inequality is not true because 1 is not less than 1.
Therefore (2, 1) is not a solution.
