    I am confused what you did there. Did you divide 1/3 to both sides?

    3(x-2)/3 <=1/3 /3 Would I distribute first and then divide or just divide the whole thing?

    Did you turn it into an improper fraction? I am unsure how you got 18/3 + 1/3

    So we have 3x => 6 1/3 divided by 3?

  28. anonymous

    so we get x==> 2 1/9

    2 1/9 = 19/9

    Right, so X<= 19/9 or 2 1/9

    no x==> 19/9 we did not divide by a negative to change the sign

    So X is greater than or equal to 19/9?
