Does that say x is less than 1?

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

8. anonymous

so im right?

9. anonymous

wait no my answer is x<1

10. nincompoop

show your step-by-step solution

11. whpalmer4

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

12. anonymous

@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. anonymous

so $x \ge -1$

15. nincompoop

SHOW YOUR SOLUTION :)

You're clearly just guessing at a list of answers. If you are going to do that, you need to check your guesses!
