What did you get when you tried to solve it?
Remember that you're trying to get x alone! What can you do to make x lonely?
Subtract 4 from both sides. \[4+x-4<8-4\] \[x<4\]
helpful videos also under http://www.khanacademy.org/ and then "solving linear equalities"
ok i think i got it so in a question like |dw:1333481597121:dw| you have to multiply 6 twice
Show the rest of you work! What do you do next? ^
So you have |dw:1333481883303:dw| And you're trying to get x alone, right? What do you think you can do to achieve that?
|dw:1333481989700:dw|i think that i should do this
-6x is -6 multiplied by x. To undo this, you want to divide by -6, right? Also, when multiplying or dividing by a negative number you must switch the signs! I hope this helps! |dw:1333482283251:dw|
yea it helps alot actually because i wasdo that but i was nervous because it might have been wrong but its right ok so these are study island questions and since im in 6th grade ther giving out brain busters so heres another |dw:1333482804731:dw|
at the end is a negative 4
|dw:1333483050517:dw| A bit hard to read, is it like this?
\[(x/-5) \ge -4\]
If X is divided by -5, how do you think you can undo that?
