RealityWillSlapYou 2 years ago Please help me! Thank you! (◕‿◕✿) Part 1: Solve the inequality 12 + 4x ≤ 5x - 2 and show all of your work. You can use <= to represent the less than or equal to symbol. Part 2: Use complete sentences to describe the graph of the solution from Part 1. Be sure to include the type of circle and which direction the shading will be. Note: I'm only having trouble with Part 2!

@precal, thank you for that wonderful graph you made for me, however I need it to be described.... meaning that I need it in words. I thank you again it is a help just not the help I need right now. :D

3. precal

well you can use your own words to describe the solutions

4. precal

did they want the negative numbers? zero? positive numbers? Is 14 part of the solution?

5. RealityWillSlapYou

I'm not really sure they weren't very detailed.

6. RealityWillSlapYou

I am really bad at math, so it's extremely hard for me to describe it and put it into words

7. precal

type of circle means do you use an open circle or a closed circle. I know exactly what they want but at this point it is merely a question of the usage of your english language skills

8. RealityWillSlapYou

Okay...... well I tried to and I failed at it and so that's why I'm on here looking for help with this :(

9. precal

well write it out and I will correct you (if needed)

10. RealityWillSlapYou

You put a closed circle on 7, and shaded it to the right.

11. RealityWillSlapYou

?

12. precal

7 is not even the number you should be using|dw:1359578942429:dw|

13. RealityWillSlapYou

But part 1 is 12 + 4x ≤ 5x -2 12 -x ≤ -2 -x ≤ -14 x ≥ 7

14. RealityWillSlapYou

Right?

15. precal

last step is incorrect, 14 does not turn into 7

16. precal

|dw:1359579117248:dw|

17. RealityWillSlapYou

Oh, I don't know how I got the 7 but some how I did! Oops!

18. RealityWillSlapYou

Then it's: You put a closed circle on 14, and shaded it to the right.

19. RealityWillSlapYou

I'm I right this time?

20. precal

yes but what does that all mean closed circle, does that mean 14 is part of the solution?

21. RealityWillSlapYou

I think so...

22. precal

yes and if the circle is open then that would mean that 14 is not part of the solution

23. precal

now what numbers do we want from the number line: negative? zero? positive?

24. RealityWillSlapYou

Because of the "less then or equal to" sign I could be equal to x or it could be less then... correct?

25. RealityWillSlapYou

Positive?

26. RealityWillSlapYou

Because it's going to the right?

27. precal

so 1,2,3,4,5, etc are all solutions?

28. RealityWillSlapYou

Yes....?

29. precal

|dw:1359580332816:dw|really?

30. precal

gotta go in about 5 minutes you are my last question of the day

31. RealityWillSlapYou

So, am I right?

32. precal

14 is not less than 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13

33. precal

no you are not right

34. precal

you want 14,15,16,17, etc so you want 14 and all of the numbers bigger than 14

35. RealityWillSlapYou

Oh, yeah that's right..... I feel dumb

36. precal

np

37. RealityWillSlapYou

So, I shad it to the left?
