Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Twice 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Note: Had this work been correct: x > 9/ 2, x >  4.5, then the answer would be 4 and not 5.
