    If you changed the wording of "c" to say "less than or equal to", then "c" would be correct.

    So, a simpler way to see the change to selection "c" is to change the word "greater" to "equal" and then you can have "c" as the correct answer. I would think that this is this is the case because "c" as worded looks like a typo, because one doesn't have something "greater to". One would have "equal to" or "greater than". So, make the correction to the wording of "c" and take that one.

    Isn't it:\[-2x + 7 \le 11\]instead? Isn't there a bar under the inequality sign?

    It is necessary to keep in mind that the two symbols are not the same. "c" is then definitely the correct answer since that is "less than or equal to".

    If the symbol were < Then it would be "less than"

    −2x + 7 ≤ 13 You will eventually get:x≥−3 if you first subtract 7 from both sides and then divide both sides by -2 (and also switching the inequality sign direction). And that's all there is to it.
