you don't have any negatives that you will multiply or divide both sides by so the greater than or equal to sign will not move.

8x  5 ≥ 27 + 5 +5 (Add 5 to both side) 5+5 cancels out, you now have 8x/8 and 32/5. So, C. c. x ≤ 4

\[8x5\ge27 \] +5 +5 \[8x \ge32\] divide both sides by 8 \[x \ge32/8\] x\[\ge4\]

if it was a negative 8"" instead of positive then you would..... \[8x \ge32\] divide by 8 \[x \le32\div8\] \[x \le4\]

do the same thing and divide both sides by (3) "this flips the sign the other way" \[x <8\] now i'm pretty sure it doesn't want you to graph it on a plot but i'll show you both that and number line

that is on the number line and the closed circle means it does not exactly touch 8, but "x"=every number before 8. even. 7.9999999999 etc
