#### Answer

a) $x$ is in the interval: $(-\infty,-2) \cup (2, \infty)$.
b) $x$ is in the interval $[-2,2]$.

#### Work Step by Step

a) We look for the interval where the graph is above the x-axis. We see that this happens before $-2$ and after $2$. Thus, we get: $(-\infty,-2) \cup (2, \infty)$.
b) We look for the x-values such that the graph is below or on the x-axis. This is the opposite of (a): the interval $[-2,2]$.
