Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You would want to get x by itself to solve for x. To do this, you'd add 4 to both sides. So it would become 2x> 12. Then divide by 2. When you divide by a negative on an inequality , the sign flips. So > would become <. x<6. You can prove this because less than a negative number, such as 6, would be farther back on the negative line. So less than 6 would be 7, or 8, and so on. You can plug 7 in and it becomes 10>8, which is true.
