If x 5 0, then jxj 5 0, and x is not in B. If x , 0, then 2x 5 jxj. Therefore a negative number x is in B if and only if 2x . 3, or 10 x , 23. Thus B 5 (2N, 23) , (3,N). Figure 9 shows that A - B 5 [ 25, 23) , (3, 5]. 1 Number Systems The Triangle Inequality 7 It is not difficult to see that ja 1 bj 5 jaj 1 jbj when a and b have the same sign (see Exercise 53). If a and b have opposite signs, however, then cancellation occurs in the sum a 1 b but not in the sum jaj 1 jbj. In this case, ja 1 bj , jaj 1 jbj.

We may rewrite this equation in the form 2mx 1 y 5 b, or Ax 1 By 5 D where A 5 2m, B 5 1, and D 5 b. The vertical line x 5 a may also be written in the form Ax 1 By 5 D by setting A 5 1, B 5 0, and D 5 a. Thus every line can be described by a Cartesian equation of the form Ax 1 By 5 D ð1:3:5Þ where A and B are not both zero. 5) describes a line. 5) is the general equation of a line (or the general linear equation). ⁄ E X A M P L E 7 What is the slope of the line 4x 2 2y 5 7? Solution We rewrite the general linear equation in slope-intercept form: 22y 5 24x 1 7; 7 y 5 2x 2 : 2 or This equation tells us that the line has slope 2.
