Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You create an inequality and solve. 7x>(1/15) divide by 7, and when you divide across an inequality with a negative, you must switch the direction of the sign, so X<(1/15)(1/7) X<(1/105) So your answer is, x is less than 1/105.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so when i type it in should i type it as a fraction or i can just type < 105

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah it must be a fraction or the original expression is not true. If you substitute 105 in the first equation, it is not true. But if you substitute 1/105, it will be true, so it must be a the fraction.
