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.

What will you get?

2x - 2?

- anonymous

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

@nicxle.62 Please don't give direct answersâ€¦ the student must understand the concept.

And yes, Jocey! Great job :)

Hmm.. you're mixing your signs.

Try again :)

I'm in debt of $12â€¦ I pay back $2.. how much debt am I still in?

- anonymous

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.

- anonymous

See above.

- 12 + 2 = ?

- anonymous

14 right ?

- anonymous

I'm in debt of $12â€¦ I pay back $2.. how much debt am I still in?

- anonymous

No.. 12 PLUS 2 = 14.

- anonymous

Debt = Negative Sign

- anonymous

10 ?

- anonymous

-10

- anonymous

okay
