Hiya! Would somebody be able to check my answer?
The solution of t/18 > 10 is t <  180.
True or false? I believe the answer to be True because the absolute value can never be negative. Would really appreciate the extra help. Thanks!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0t/18 > 10 you can solve this inequality if you multiply both sides by 18 it will still hold that the left side is greater than the right side t/18 * 18 > 10*18 t>180 now you can multiply both sides by 1 but if you multiply by 1 the greater than sign becomes less than sign t<180

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we went from b>a to b<a both of these are saying the same thing just in a different way

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. I was thinking it was not absolute value however it was included in an all absolute value worksheet so I was not sure (that's why I asked.) I just did not know if you changed the greater sign to a less sign, which you have now clarified for me that you do. Thank you again for the help!!!! yay
