Hey what do you think we do first?
First, like any equation, we would subtract 9 from both sides, right?
Coreect so what do we get?
We take the constant off. So subtract 9 from both sides. There is your answer
-2 (greater than/equal to sign) -p would be the answer?
No, - and - equals positive. your answer will be in positive
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!
Yes i agree to its 2 :D Its just that she said subtract 9 and thats your answer but you forgot to multiply by -1
Yeah, it's wrong on MANY occasions. Thanks, everyone!
\[-2 \ge-p\] multiply by -1 \[2\le p\] or \[p \ge 2\]
