## anonymous one year ago Solve the inequality 7(x - 2) < -5. x < 9/7 x > 9/7 x < -9/7 x > -9/7

Do you know what to do first

2. anonymous

no because the x's are already on one side

3. anonymous

7x-14<-5 then 7x<-5+14 7x<9 and x<9/7

1. Simplify both sides:$7x−14<−5$

5. KendrickLamar2014

2. Add 14 to both sides:$7x−14+14<−5+14 = 7x<9$

6. KendrickLamar2014

3. Divide both sides by 7:$\frac{ 7x }{ 7} < \frac{ 9 }{ 7 }$

7. KendrickLamar2014

Which give you an answer of:$x < \frac{ 9 }{ 7 }$

thank you so much
