Twice an**** integer ***increased by fourteen is less than 5
The answer has to be an integer.
I think that the problem is set up incorrectly.
Twice an integer increased by fourteen is less than 5
2x + 14 IS Less Than 5.
2x + 14 < 5
2x < - 9
x < -9/2
x < -4.5
The largest INTEGER value of x that is less than -4.5 is -5.
Note: Had this work been correct:
x > -9/ 2, x > - 4.5, then the answer would be -4 and not -5.
