I am helping my daughter with her math.
We are working on solving inequalities.
our problem is like this,
2x+1>3; 1
I have a basic idea, but not sure how to show her how to show work.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0subtract 1 from both sides as if it was a regular equality equation. 2x>31 or 2x>2 divide both sides by 2 giving the answer x>1 if you divide by or multiply by a 1 change the direction of the inequality. did not have to in this problem, always check your results

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when multiplying both sides by a negative change the direction of the inequality sign. Hope this did not confuse you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I dont see where you divided by 2. I see the rules but am confused

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if the problem is 2x1>3 you do it as if it were an equal sign so it be 2x1=3 so you add one to the right side which will be 2x=4 so you divide by 2 which is x=2 but since it was a (>) its x>2 and since you didn't divide by a negative you don't chance the sign. i hope it helps

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I divided both sides by 2 where it was 2x>2 2x/2 was on one side and 2/2 was on the other giving x>1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my bad so if its 2x+1>3 do it like an equal sign. 2x+1=3 so you subtract one to the right side which will make it 2x=2 so to leave the x by itself you divide by two. So it be x=1 but since you had(>) it be x>1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Remember how you try to isolate the x on one side and have constants on the opposite side? If you subtract from one side you must subtract from the other side.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I subtracted the 1 to isolate the unknown on one side.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, look carefully 2x+1>3 is the same as x>1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No I am doing a series of steps that will solve the problem. Step 1 was to subtract 1 from both sides giving 2x>31 or 2x>2 You do see that on the left side 2x+11 = 2x
