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

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

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

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

    a - 3.3 >= 2.6 a > = 5.9

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

  12. shamil98

    because 3.3 is on the side with a.

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

    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

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

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

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

    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.

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

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

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