Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so u want x by itself so since 7 is negative you would add it to the other side and get 9x/11 < 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so then you would take the 11 and multiply it to the other side since it was first dividing 9x and you would get 9x = 22 ok?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its 9 and you would divide since it was first multiplying (remember do the opposite) and whenever u multiply or divide by a negative u flip the < sign in the other direction and you would get x > 22/9 ok? and thats your answer
