Please help me solve this inequality!! PLEASE HELP :)
add 3 on both sides. You'll get -9x >= 54 Divide or multiply both sides by -1.. such as -9x * 1 >= 54*-1 since value of 54 is now negative, so we flip the inequality sign.. therefore 9x<= -54 divide both sides by 9 and solve.. you'll get x <=-6 Hope this helps

awesome thanks sooooo much i just really needed some help understanding how to solve for that type of problem :)
can you help me with one more im trying to get used to how to solve these darn things haha

and just curious can i solve a problem like this on my TI?
sure you can.. BTW just so were on the same page by Tl you mean a calculator ryt?? sorry if I'm wrong and please go ahead and correct me and elucidate the term Tl...
yeah texas instruments 83 plus silver edition
yeah sure ypu can.. But you'll be literally insulting the poor machine and its maker by trying to solve such an easy sum..
so i know i am supposed to add the two to the seven which is ten and then to the -3x but that stays the same for some reason then i forgot what to do next haha
newho back to the sum -3x -2 > 7 its same as before.. Take the constant terms onright hand side, by contant terms i mean the numerical terms without variables..
just tell me if you understand what i mean by taking term on the right hand side..
taking term not sure of the meaning i would assume take it and add 2 to it
then what do i do
great now we have reduced the equation to -3x>7 Multiply or Divide both sides by -1 The sign will be flipped as at both the sides we are multiplying by negative 1..
that is 3x <-7 or x<-7/3
i made a small mistake der
well be having -3x>9 since we added 2 on both sides
after multiplying or dividing my negative 1 in this equation well get
ok so after i take the 2 and add it to 7 to get 9 i also add it to the -3x and then i have -3x>9 then i how do i know if i am to multiply or divide to get the answer x<-3
well it doesnt't matter.. you divide a no by -1 or multiply a number -1 you get the same answer... get it?
yup i get it the only thing i am still confused about it how you took 3x<-9 and got x<-3 what did i miss haha
we still have a co efficient that is the number that you've along with your variable in 3x<-9 ryt??
what we want is value of just x and not 3x.. So in order to find the value of just x we divide both the sides by 3..
ultimately giving us x<-3 and VIOLA!!!
Elizabeth did you get it??
sorry just one sec i had to do something and havent read it all yet one sec to let me look over it haha
awesome makes so much more sense now k haha im blonde so its just like a turtle learning new skills haha
well you may not be good at maths but you sure are funny!! :D
haha thanks
neways i gtta squat now.. if u ever hv nemore question.. post em.. adios!!!
