Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1add 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1great 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..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well it doesnt't matter.. you divide a no by 1 or multiply a number 1 you get the same answer... get it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yup 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we still have a co efficient that is the number that you've along with your variable in 3x<9 ryt??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what 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..
