RealityWillSlapYou Group Title

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

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

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

    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

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

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

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

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