Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why do you divide by 4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0cuz i see 4x7≤20 and i want to isolate x eventually therfore im interested in x7 on the left side.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i have 4 * x7 on the left side...im only interested in x7 so i hav to devide the left side by 4...since we devide the left side by 4, we HAVE to devide the right side by 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, i see. how did you get x7≤ 5 or x7≤ 5? how'd you get the 5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0by definition, if x = A x = A or x = A

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0cuz when u take the absolute value of A, it is A and when u take the absolute value of A, it is A This 'A' can be any real number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i drew a line at x=2, the red vertival line..and just shaded the area (that is left side in this case) x<=2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do the same for x<=12 draw a line at x=12, and shade the less than area, that is left side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x7<=5 5<= (x7) <= 5 2<= x <= 12 CORRECT that is different from the other person answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0also, if the answer was x<=12 or x<=2 then you would merge both the solutions to just x<=12, bec ause that is where they both hold, BUT REMEMBER THAT ANSWER IS INCORRECT , corrrect answer is above

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0EDIT: you would merge them to x<=2
