## Solmyr 3 years ago Can someone help me with, 5(x + 6) 3x - 4 (Without giveing the answer)

1. ParthKohli

Is that an equals sign?

2. Solmyr

<=

3. Solmyr

srry forgot to fix it

4. ParthKohli

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

5. ParthKohli

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

6. Solmyr

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

7. Solmyr

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

8. Solmyr

i mean 2x * 30 = -4

9. nbouscal

That's a +, not a *

10. Solmyr

so 2x +30??

11. Solmyr

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

12. xoya

listen the equation is 5(x + 6) 3x - 4 this onlyy????

13. Solmyr

5(x + 6) <= x - 4

14. nbouscal

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.

15. Solmyr

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

16. nbouscal

Right.

17. Solmyr

giving me 2x = -34 divide 2 to both sides and get x >= -17?

18. nbouscal

>= or <=?

19. Solmyr

>= cause i have to flip the signs

20. nbouscal

Why?

21. Solmyr

or do i?
