PLEASE!!!! HELP ME!!! Solve: 5(x+6)less than or equal to 3x-4 a) x greater than or equal to -17 b) x greater than or equal to 17 c) x less than or equal to -17 d) x less than or equal to -5
what if you had say Solve: 5(x+6) = 3x-4 and were to solve for "x", what would that give you?
|dw:1373311337827:dw| first you have to distribute
so it would be 5x+30 and the rest would be the same if i distributed right??
|dw:1373311655651:dw| now move the x to one side
I know i had to distribute, first, but after that, i am soo lost
im sorry, im stuck on dumb when it comes to math
ok ill give it to you step by step hold on
5(x + 6) < = 3x - 4 (distribute the 5 through the parenthesis) 5x + 30 <= 3x - 4 (subtract 3x from both sides) 5x - 3x + 30 <= 3x - 3x - 4 (combine like terms) 2x + 30 <= -4 (subtract 30 from each side) 2x + 30 - 30 <= -4 - 30 (combine like terms) 2x <= -34 (divide both sides by 2) 2x/2 <= -34/2 x <= -17 (x is less then or equal to -17) Any questions ?
your second step, TEXASCHIC, i dont think im suppose to subtract 3x??

OH, ok! than you both, now i understand, than you both sooo much
you need to do the reverse of +3, so you -3
how do i give out medals to you both? and yes i undertsand .
you can only give 1 medal, but you can fan as many people you want :)
