10-12.

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

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

1. $\left(2,1\right)$

$1<|2−3|\\1<|−1|\\1<1$

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

1. $\left(-4,5\right)$

1. $\left(-2,8\right)$

1. $\left(0,3\right)$
