7. anonymous

-6/5 > or less than x

8. anonymous

5x-2>8 5x-2>-8 +2 +2 +2 +2 5x > 10 5x > -10

9. anonymous

I dont know what to do after the last line

10. anonymous

$\left| 5x-2 \right|>-8$ 5x - 2 > -8 5x -2 > 8 +2 +2 +2 +2 5x > -6 5x > 10 /5 /5 /5 /5 x > -6/5 or -1 1/5 x > 2 $x=\frac{ -6 }{ 5 }, 2$
