-2 (greater than/equal to sign) -p would be the answer?
Kash_TheSmartGuy
  • Kash_TheSmartGuy
No, - and - equals positive. your answer will be in positive
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
so we subtract and get -2 so now we have'' −2≥−p now Multiply both sides by −1 what do we get?

2 is greater than or equal to p

I agree,the answer is 2 is greater than or equal to p, but IXL says that p is greater than or equal to 2. WHy are they doing this? IXL is adding p to both sides.

IXL is wrong!

\[-2 \ge-p\] multiply by -1 \[2\le p\] or \[p \ge 2\]
