2. AriPotta

you have to get x by itself. how would you do that

3. Haleyy_Bugg

get rid of the 3?

4. AriPotta

yea but how would you do that

5. Haleyy_Bugg

....subtract it?

6. AriPotta

no, you would add it. you have to do the opposite and since it's being subtracted, you add

7. AriPotta

so add 3 to both sides

8. Haleyy_Bugg

okay. to both sides right?

9. AriPotta

yes. what do you get?

10. Haleyy_Bugg

x >= 8?

11. AriPotta

yep. so firstly, would the circle be open or closed

12. Haleyy_Bugg

closed!

13. AriPotta

yes! and would the shading be to the right or the left

14. Haleyy_Bugg

so B?

15. AriPotta

no :/ because the shading would be to the right. x is greater than or equal to 8. and since the numbers on a number line get greater as you go to the right, the shading is to the right

16. Haleyy_Bugg

oh :c okay! but thanks!

17. AriPotta

no problemo
