    ok for example say x is = 50 2x+9>x+19 2(50)>50+19 100>69 100 is greater than 69 ie 100>69 when i was in school the > was called an alligator and would open its mouth to the bigger number it waas greedy so to solve for x 2x+9>x+19 2x-x+9>19 x+9>19 see if you can do the last bit

    Is the x considered 1x or do I just add it to 9 and say 9x>19?

    So I got this so far 1x+9>19 and x is equal to 11.

    what age are you? yes very good 11 is a correct answer so too finish it off 1x>19-9 1x>10 like you said 11 work so does 10.0000000000000000000000000000000001 so any number greater than 10
