What is the solution of 5a + 12 < 2 and 5a - 12 < 3?
first one solution a<-2
solution for the second one is a<3
thanks! can you explain how you got it?
5a < 2 ( - 12) subtracted 12 from both sides to get rid of the 12 on the left 5a < -10 to seperate into the form a = something we need to divide a by 5, but when you do that you will always do it on both sides (just like with the subtracting so we get a < -10/5 -10/5 is -2 try it on the other one
