    I would leave the -8 and add the 4 from the 2x-4 to the <2 What would you get?

    It's a double inequality so it's going to look like\[[ ] \le x <[ ]\]

    so you need to get x by itself, to do that you have to divide everything by 2. |dw:1361036855393:dw| Then what would you get?

    kitt, you made a mistake, you cant just add 4 to the right side and middle you must do it to the entire inequality including the left side this would of course change the answer you gave

    so if you dived that out you should get the right answer(: the inequality signs don't change because you aren't multiplying or dividing by a negative number.
