Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First , U have to get the "w" in one side an all other stuff on the other side , to do this simply you have to divide both sides by 2 like this : \[\frac{ 2(w  5) }{ 2 } < \frac{ 8}{ 2 }\] nw you get : \[(w5) < 4\] nw get the 5 from left side to the right one nw you get : \[w < 1\] Which is what ! "C" Simple, isn't it ! :D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can also distribute the 2 first and then add 10 and divide 2 on both sides. 2(w − 5) < −8 2w10 < 8 2w  10 + 10 <8+10 2w < 2 w < 1
