How do I solve and graph this inequality? 12x + 4 ≥ 16 or 3x – 5 ≤ –14
Solve it like an equation but remember that the inequality changes if you divide or multiply by a negative number.
I am new to this, could you help me do this problem? If I solve it like an equation... where do I start?
Ok, so the first inequality is \[12x \ge 16-4\] \[12x \ge \] \[x \ge \frac{ 12 }{ 12 }\] \[x \ge 1\]
Okay, got it... so then is the second one x \[x \le 6\] ?
\[3x \le -14+5\] \[3x \le -9\] \[x \le \frac{ -9 }{ 3 }\] \[x \le -3\]
Oh, okay, I think I see what I did wrong here... so then to graph this...?
Just ask questions if you have any. Graphing it is actually really simple, do you know what a numberline is?
Yes, I know what a number line is. I think I know how to do it now. Thanks for your help!
