A triangle is formed with the coordinate axes and the graph of the line y=−3x+5. Rewrite the expression |x−2| without absolute value, if we know that x is the x coordinate of a point in the triangle.
|x - 2| = (x - 2) if x >= 2
|x - 2| = (2 - x) if x < 2
Since every point in the triangle has an x value >= 0 and <= 5/3, this means that we should take the second definition.
We can write it as: "2 - x".
