I haven't done many problems like this before, what part should I do first?

start by subtracting 5 from both sides so that you get the x by itself

Ok so 4/5x < 2

actually, doing it that way is going to make it more complicated than it needs to be ... one moment

ok :)

because -3 -5 = -8

;P I always get mixed up with that even though I've gone over it a million times

ok so what should you do next?

But, because they're tricky there's another answer too!

next, multiply both sides by 5x to get that 5x out of the denominator

ok so it would be 4x < -40 right

4 = -40x

\[4 < -3(5x+5)\]

because
\[\frac{ 4(5x) }{ 5x } = 4\]
and
\[-8 (5x )= -40x\]

It's important to note, if this is (4/5)x + 5 < -3
or
4/(5x) + 5 < -3
These are not the same.

\[4<-15x-15\]

4+15<-15x

@californiagirl55 my last equation should have had 4 < -40x (with < not =)

19<-15x

19/-15

grrr except I left off the negatives on the threes

so what is the right question @RoamingBlue ??????/

I have no idea *grins* wasn't my question to start with :D
