5(x + 2) greater than or equal to 7x + 2(x − 1) 5x + 10

7x + 2x-2

5x +10 < 9x-2
alekos
  • alekos
NO \[5x+10\ge9x-2\]
alekos
  • alekos
Now you'll need to get x's on the left and constants on the right

@smart103 What was the correct answer?
alekos
  • alekos
Next step is \[5x-9x \ge -2-10\]
alekos
  • alekos
then we have \[-4x \ge-12\]
alekos
  • alekos
multiply both sides by -1 \[4x \le12\]
alekos
  • alekos
finally divide both sides by 4 \[x \le3\]
