Are you saying that if $\frac{(2x+1)}{(x+1)} \le 2$ then $x \le 1$?

8. Katieann16

so im right?

9. Katieann16

wait no my answer is x<1

11. whpalmer4

How about if x = -2? (2(-2)+1)/(-2+1) = -3/-1 = 3, oops.

12. Katieann16

@whpalmer4 , no thats not a answer choice.

13. whpalmer4

My point is that x = -2 is a value that should work if your answer is correct. It doesn't. Therefore, your answer is not correct.

14. Katieann16

so $x \ge -1$
