i need help that is why i asked

Well think of the question with the less than or equal to symbol as an equal sign. Just remember if you divide by a negative the symbol will become a greator than or equal to.

One treats an inequality just like and equation algebraically except that the inequality is reversed when multiplied or divided by a negative number.

So what answer did you get ashlynn?

not yet hold on let me think then i will ask

ashlynn143Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so is it \[b \le 6\]
 one year ago

blahblah_who_caresBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Well I think you forgot 1 step that both I and wetlife have said about multiplying or dividing by negatives.

\[b7 \le 1\] \[b \le 6 \] b>=6
 one year ago

blahblah_who_caresBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
DLS the problem with your work is that your less than or equal to sign cannot end up as a greator than sign. It is impossible for that to happen.

\[b  7\le 1 \] \[b  7 = 1\] \[b = 6\] \[b \le 6\]

yes ashylnn, but you are missing the last step. You must simplify equation. .You are not looking for what negative b is, but you are looking for just the variable b

ashlynn143Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes so i would divide it like this ?? dw:1357805403002:dw
 one year ago

blahblah_who_caresBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
ummm.. no. Because you want b on one side, you would not divide both sides by b. Hint: 5= 1*5.

ashlynn143Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
what where would you get a negative 5 and that is a 6 in my drawing
 one year ago

wetlifeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
b/b=1 if b not 0 and 6/b=6/b.
 one year ago

blahblah_who_caresBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
ashylnn my point is to help. It is not to give answers. The example of 5 = 5*1 is an example to help give you a hint. It has nothing to do with your problem. It is to give you an idea of where you need to fix

ok i thought that it involved my question

blahblah_who_caresBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Well I learned something in the process, so thank you.

what is the * thing in the hint / example
 one year ago

blahblah_who_caresBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
it means times
 one year ago

ashlynn143Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
but isn't it that what you do on one side you do to the other to
 one year ago

blahblah_who_caresBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Yes. That is correct. So what do you understand so far?

ashlynn143Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok so i think i know how to solve the problem correctly this time

blahblah_who_caresBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Correct. I am assuming that you either multiplied both sides by 1 or divided both sides by 1
 one year ago

ashlynn143Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i multiplied both sides but i got it correct??
 one year ago

blahblah_who_caresBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
multiplying by both sides is the correct way. I am also saying that if you had divided it by 1 you would have gotten the same answer. Both ways are correct
 one year ago

blahblah_who_caresBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Also I have noticed you are using the asteric symbol. Just remember that asteric symbol is only used on the computer. When done on paper, the correct way is to use a dot in the middledw:1357806252885:dw

ashlynn143Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes i know that as well because is you were to do x on a problem like this it would get someone confused

ashlynn143Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok thanks you very much maybe now i can kinda do the other ones good and if there is really hard one can i ask you for help?
