solve the inequality 2x + 5 > 8x - 8
I think your inequality symbol is facing the wrong way...@stgreen
1)2x + 5 > 8x - 8 2)combine like terms 3)8x moves with 2x makes it negative which results with -6x a) 5 goes with -8 and changes to negative since it is going over, which makes -13 4)Then you simply divide to get x <13/6.
