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.

4. anonymous

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.

2x - 2?

8. anonymous

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

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

10. anonymous

And yes, Jocey! Great job :)

I am not giving direct answers @Aureyliant

Try again :)

I'm in debt of \$12… I pay back \$2.. how much debt am I still in?

18. 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.

19. anonymous

See above.

20. anonymous

- 12 + 2 = ?

21. anonymous

14 right ?

22. anonymous

I'm in debt of \$12… I pay back \$2.. how much debt am I still in?

23. anonymous

No.. 12 PLUS 2 = 14.

24. anonymous

Debt = Negative Sign

25. anonymous

10 ?

26. anonymous

-10

27. anonymous

okay

-5 ?

30. anonymous

Rules: - - = + ++ = + -+ = - +- = -

31. anonymous

Yes! Awesome job!
