Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. Distribute the fraction (3/4) over (n6). This should give you the new equation: n  (5/2) > (3/4)n  4.5 2. Now combine like terms. This means put all the numbers that are being multiplied by X together, and all the numbers together. First, isolate n. To get n alone, we can make the other number next to it ( 5/2) zero. We do this by adding the opposite of the number to it. So (5/2) plus (5/2) gives you zero. Now you have n all alone on the left side of the equation. But because you added a number to one side, you must do it to the other to keep the equation balanced. So now add 5/2 to the other side. You'll get: n > (3/4)n  (4.5 + 5/2) Because 5/2 is the same as 2.5: n > (3/4)n  (7) Now, put both n's on the same side to combine like terms. To get (3/4)n away from the right side of the equation, subtract it by (3/4)n to get zero on the right side. Now do the same thing to the left side. n  (3/4n) > 7 1 entire n subtracted by 3fourths of another n leaves you with onefourths n. SO , 1/4n > 7 Now, complete the problem by isolating the n completely. Divide both sides by 1/4. This will give you: n > 28 Hope it helped (and wasn't too late)!
