-5x >= 25 Divide both sides by -5 Remember to be careful when you divide an inequality by a negative number. You must change the direction of the inequality sign.

Now what do you do?

@mathstudent55 would you solve it to get an answwer?

Once you divide both sides by -5, you get x <= -5 Since the inquality sign has an equal in it, you must use a closed circle that the number -5 is included in the answer. Then you shade to the left of -5 to show the answer includes all numbers less than -5.

@mathstudent55 okay so the answer would be B, thanks for your help!
