    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

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

    because 3.3 is on the side with a.

    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

    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.

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