do you have an example? they are just like equations but with a slight hiccup in them
 amistre64
when we multiply or divide them by a negative number; we need to reverse the symbol, and heres why
5 > 3 ; multiply both sides by 1
5 > 3 is false; so we flip the symbol to account for it
 amistre64
5 < 3

wait what
 amistre64
'wait what' is not a comprehensible response that i can really respond to.
 anonymous
sorry heres one i need help with
p+(3)>6
 amistre64
ok
how would we solve for 'p' if this was an equation?
 anonymous
add 3 to both sides?
 amistre64
then do that with this :)
p > 3 is the answer
 anonymous
oh well what about this one?
2y<10

this btw is a less than or equal to sign
 amistre64
2y
 anonymous
that i do not know but i think it has something to do with division
 amistre64
your are right about that :) divide both sides by 2
 anonymous
i don't get why
 amistre64
2y has a 2 stuck to it right? its is multiplied right on there..
 amistre64
how do we undo multiplication?
 anonymous
oh division
 amistre64
then to unstick it; we divide by 2 right :)
 anonymous
then it would be 5
 amistre64
yes .... but we have the hiccup here... we had to multiply or divide the y by a negative number... right?
 anonymous
what do you mean by hiccup
 amistre64
i mean that they dont tell you this little fact when you do equations because its redundant..... but whenever you have to multiply the variable by a negative number; ALWAYS flip your sign around..
 anonymous
ok
 amistre64
an = sign flip around looks like = so its a step they omit to tell you
 amistre64
> flips around to be <
< flips around to be >
= flips around to be =
 anonymous
so the answer would be y \[\ge\]5
 amistre64
exactly :)
 anonymous
thanks a lot how do i give u a medal
 amistre64
hit f5 if you wanna refresh your browser and youll see a good answer next to my name
 anonymous
Alternatively you can just swap the left and right sides by adding..
2y < 10
+2y  10 + 2y  10
==============
10 < 2y
Then do the division normally.
