    \[5(x + 6) \le 3x - 4 \]You start by distributing 5 into x + 6.

    Actually, you solve it exactly like you solve \(5(x + 6) = 3x - 4\)

    ok so do 5 * x and 5 * 6 and get 5x * 30

    and do -3x to both sides and get 5x * 30 = -4

    2x + 30 = -4. Then +4 to both sides then divide 2 to both sides? and get, x >= 15?

    No, you have to subtract 30 from both sides. If you add 4 to both sides you get 2x+34=0, you need the constant on the other side of the = from the variable.

    so 2x + 30 = -4. oh :PP -30 to both sides and divide 2 to both sides?
