you cannot, i repeat CANNOT solve an inequality with variable coefficients
i will tell you what they want you to say, but only after if you tell me where the question comes from
whoever wrote it is either extremely careless or doesn't know any math

- anonymous

Umm, it's from one of my math quizzes for school.. I didn't write it, the school did lol

- anonymous

I don't know why they give it to us if it's wrong but I don't have a say in what problems they give us.. :/

- anonymous

i know you didn't
i will answer you when you tell me exactly where the question comes from
on line school? in class school, where exactly

- anonymous

from an online school called MEWA... it's a Algebra review quiz and I am stuck on how to solve it

- anonymous

ok i will write to them
now here is what they want you to do

- anonymous

hahaha okayy but don't mention my name! haha

- anonymous

\[-ax+2b>8\]first subtract \(2b\) from both sides , get
\[-ax=8-2b\]

- anonymous

okay, that's what I was thinking I had to do... do you have to divide A from both sides?

- anonymous

then they want you to do this ( and this is the mistake)
they want you to divide by \(-a\) and say "since \(-a\) is negative, i should switch the inequality" and write
\[x<\frac{8-2b}{-a}\] or
\[x<\frac{2b-8}{a}\]

- anonymous

that is what they want from you
hope the steps are clear

- anonymous

Yea that's what they taught us to do, it's a specific rule of theirs..

- anonymous

ok good luck

- anonymous

Yea they are! and thank you, that was pretty easy :)
