    Answer:

    175 ≤ x ≤ 185

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given that :

    Steve’s weight for the past 20 years = 180 pounds ; give or take 5 pounds

    The average weight of 180 has stayed within range of plus or minus 5 pounds of the mean weight

    |x – 180| ≤ 5

    x – 180 ≤ 5

    x ≤ |5 + 180|

    x ≤ 185

    Also:

    |x – 180| ≥ – 5

    x – 180 ≥ – 5

    x ≥ |-5 + 180|

    x ≥ 175

    Hence, Steve’s range of possible weight :

    175 ≤ x ≤ 185
