    2t + 5 ≥ -7 if it makes it less confusing think of this as \[\huge~\rm~2t + 5 = -7\] We subtract the 5 \[\huge~\rm~-7-5=?\]

    @pooja195 forgot to mention to subtract 5 - 5 which in other words cancel out

    Now multiply both sides by -1 (reverse the sign) (-1) (-2t) ≤ (-1) (-12)

    Now we divide both sides by 2 \[\frac{ 2t }{ 2 } ≤ \frac{ 12 }{ 2 }\]
