Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so first case + /  , we have (3x + 2) >= 0 and denominator < 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so right now, you can let it behave as though it's an equation and say that (3x+2)/(x5)= 0 (for simplicity's sake). Then, multiply both sides by x5, but on both sides it just disappears, leaving you with 3x+2 = 0. Subtract two, and divide by 3, to get x ≤ 2/3, after replacing the "=" with "≤" (in this case, the direction of the inequality doesn't change, so you don't lose any information by converting between the two. Hope that helped

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you're going to type a response, type it in one swoop, don't just break it up into several just to get your achievements.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have more cases than just x < = 2/3, its a compound inequality

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0youre right, the second answer is 5.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright, I think I made a mistake with my sign change from the l.e. to =. Because you had something in the denominator, it does flip to "greater than or equal to", and thus you have x is greater than or equal to 2/3. And, to have the case that cantorset was talking about, you have to have some region where x5 < 0, which gives you x < 5. So, we now know that x satisfies the expression anywhere in between 2/3 and 5, including 2/3, and excluding 5.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02=3x since (3x+2)/(x5)\[\le\]0 multiply the (x5) on each side, on the left side it cancels out, on the right side its 0 (0 times any number is 0.) then remove the parenthesis, subtract two, which gets you 3x=2. you can simplify this further, which will get you a decimal. (which, im also not going to do.)
