    So this is our inequality. What was your answer when you solved this? Tips: ALWAYS Distribute the parenthesis to get it out of the way when solving for x. Also, where are you getting these Q's? :) Just curious.

    Jocey, just like the last Q, distribute the left side then tell me what you got. :)

    Don't let the inequality sign confuse you! Treat it as if its an equal sign until you need to apply some of its rules.

    \[2(x-1)=2x-2\] \[2x-2\ge12\] \[2x \ge14\]

    @nicxle.62 Please don't give direct answers… the student must understand the concept.

    Keep the inequality sign the way it is! You only flip it when you divide a NEGATIVE number on both sides. But that's not relevant for this answer right now.
