Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Basically what the question is asking is what is going to be bigger than 5 once you solve the equation, so can you eliminate any answers that are not bigger than 5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.110x + 5 > 5 (subtract 5 from both sides) 10x + 5  5 > 5  5 10x = 0 x = 0/10 = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Does that work for the equation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It doesn't seem to fit the equation...but that is how to do an inequality. You solve an inequality kind of like an equation. Except there are some rules... one of which is you can subtract/add anything to both sides as long as they are the same number...doesn't matter if it is negative or positive. (which I did) If this is done it does not change the inequality sign.Also if you divide by a positive number the inequality sign does not change. I can't see anything that I did wrong, however, the inequality doesn't seem to make sense.... 10x + 5 > 5 10 (0) + 5 > 5 0 + 5 > 5 5 > 5 (doesn't make sense ???)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It ends up with 10x > 0 so x > 0!
