## sarah.radke 2 years ago Which inequality has the following solution? a) x - 8 > -9 b) x + 7 < 6 c) x - 5≤ -6 d) x + 9 ≤ 10

2. nubeer

as you can see in graph the line shows the values of x would be less then -1... so u know ur answer should be x< -1

3. nubeer

now solve each of the options u have and see for which option u get x< -1

Oh! So it's C right? -1 - 5 ≤ -6, right?

5. nubeer

hmm nearly right just one mistake ur x<-1, not x<= -1

6. nubeer

so it's not C option

Wait, so.. Bleehhh so if x is less than or equal to -1, shouldn't option C be right? -6 ≤ -6

8. nubeer

lol but its not "less then equal to" it's just "less then"

9. Luis_Rivera

you need to solve for x, and then see which value of x is less than negative 1

? Yeah the arrow with the line under it means less than or equal to

hmm no the x u r finding dont have a line under

Ooohhh, okay! Now I get it:P Thanks Luis ^.^

No, problem. i'll thank @nubee, for laying the groundwork
