Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Well 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1One treats an inequality just like and equation algebraically except that the inequality is reversed when multiplied or divided by a negative number.

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3DLS 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yes 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

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

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1b/b=1 if b not 0 and 6/b=6/b.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3ashylnn 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

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

blahblah_who_cares

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

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

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

ashlynn143

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i multiplied both sides but i got it correct??

blahblah_who_cares
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3multiplying 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Also 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
