Help me check my answer? Solve 3x - 4 ≤ 2 or 2x + 11 ≥ -1. A- {x | x ≤ 2} B- {x | -6 ≤ x ≤ 2} C- {all reals} I know that 3x - 4 ≤ 2 is x ≤ 2 and that 2x + 11 ≥ -1 is x ≥ -6 so would it be A?

    Are there any more specific instructions? Are you looking for the domain or range?

    all i know is that im supposed to pay attention to these parts of the inequality. x ≤ 2 -6 ≤ x ≤ 2

    well knowing what i know about inequalites... i think it would be B, because each answer you got you can write it like that

    because 3x - 4 ≤ 2 equals x ≤ 2 and it said to solve either 3x - 4 ≤ 2 OR 2x + 11 ≥ -1 and both answers given(x ≤ 2 and -6 ≤ x ≤ 2) are correct.
