Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This works sort of like a triple equation now. If you add things to one side, you have to add the same amount to each other side. And remember, a number line with an open circle and a line to the right means that you do not include the value that the circle lands on (this implies greater than). A number line with a closed circle and a line to the right means that you DO include the value (this would imply greater than or equal to).
