Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's the leftside of your equation. add 2 to both sides. and then divide both sides by 3 then you will get 10 as your answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you see (2+6x) this means you distribute the negative to both terms so 26x is what it looks like with the brackets removed so you have +3x and 6x when you add those 2 terms you get 3x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03x(2+6x)<or equal to 28. => 3x26x<or equal to 28. => 3x2< or equal to 28. => 3x+2> or equal to 28. (Note the change in sign). 3x>or equal to 26 Therefore x is > or equal to 26/3. This is what I got. __ What's the correct answer?
