## anonymous 3 years ago What is the first step in solving ? g-3/7<5

1. anonymous

is the problem $\frac{ g-3 }{ 7 } < 5$

2. anonymous

yes^

3. anonymous

g-3 is being divided by 7, you need to undo this by multiplying the other side of the inequality by 7

4. anonymous

wait so what do i do first, Divide each side by 7. or Multiply each side by 7.

5. anonymous

you want to perform the opposite operation that is being done to your target variable. g-3 is already divided by 7, so you want to perform the opposite operation (multiplication) to the other side to cancel out the division on the left, so multiply by 7
