Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0although wouldn't it be 5x+5>2x8 then +2x +2x then 5+x+5>8 then 10 10 So to conclude x>18 would that be right and i know im the one who needed help but would negitive 18 be right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the negative has to be distributed to the 5 as well so 5(x+5)=2(x+4) distribute everything to get rid of the parenthesis 5x5>2x8 i cleaned it up and got x>2x8 +2x +2x x>8 ohh oops guess i forgot the negative in my first answer sorry about that
