## mikaa_toxica13 2 years ago Can anyone check my work ? Tell what number you would add to each side of the inequality to solve the inequality f - 6 more than or equal to -3

1. mikaa_toxica13

f - 6 = -3 -6 +6 --- 9 f = 9

2. shamil98

f - 6 = -3 -3 + 6 = 3 f = 3

3. shamil98

Since it's an inequality it would look like this f - 6 >= -3 f >= 3

4. mikaa_toxica13

can u help with another ?

5. shamil98

sure.

6. mikaa_toxica13

a - 3.3 more than or equal to 2.6

7. shamil98

a - 3.3 >= 2.6 a > = 5.9

8. mikaa_toxica13

ok can u explain it ?

9. shamil98

you add 3.3 to both sides to get a by itself.

10. shamil98

11. mikaa_toxica13

12. shamil98

because 3.3 is on the side with a.

13. mikaa_toxica13

so whatever is on the same side with the variable gets added

14. mikaa_toxica13

Ok I have a problem that has the variable by itself

15. shamil98

No, it's easier this way, you could do the question like this a - 3.3 = 2.6 a - 5.9 = 0 -5.9 = -a 5.9 = a

16. shamil98

I just did it that way because its the simplest and easiest way.

17. mikaa_toxica13

ok how would u do this one 5 > -18 + m

18. shamil98

5 > -18 + m add 18 to both sides 23 > m

19. mikaa_toxica13

ok why would u add 18

20. shamil98

You want to solve for m. So you want it on one side.

21. mikaa_toxica13

ok then why not 5 ?

22. shamil98

M - 18 < 5 M and 18 are on the same side , again you could subrtact 5 like i did with an example last problem but its easier this way.

23. mikaa_toxica13

ok so whatever number is on the same side with the variable is added

24. shamil98

Or subtracted .. m + 5 = 3 -5 -5 m = -2

25. mikaa_toxica13

ok thanks ! so for v - 4 < -3 I would add 4 to both sides and get v = 1

26. shamil98

Yes.

27. mikaa_toxica13

OK I think I got it. Thanks ♥
