Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ x }{ 6 } \ge 3\] this should be an easy one, how would you solve for x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How would you go about isolating x in your question, it's just like normal algebra with a funny looking sign, that has a few extra rules, such as when you divide or multiply by negative, the sign flips :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well i thought placeing 6 on the so it would be 6/6 = 1 but the 3 wins and that wouldnt be right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can click on the drawing on top right, there should be a pencil

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0THats what i ment but it is wrong

Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Mhm, well when doing algebra, you want to sort of balance things out, so it equals. What ever you do on one side you must always do to the other, and a really cool thing about algebra is, to do such things you just do the opposite operation of what already exists.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See how that works?

Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since I multiplied the left side by 6 so I could get x alone, I also have to do the same on the right to balance it out.

Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, what you do one side, you must do to the other, remember that :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now solutions to the problem could be any integer that is greater than or equal to 18.

Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you could even put \[18 \ge 18\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But wouldnt that be 18 = 18

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Look at your problem, notice the symbol dw:1437028879538:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The little line under the greater than means equal

Astrophysics
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So we say greater than or equal to

Astrophysics
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you could say your solution set is [18,19,20] :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait how did i get 18 19 and 20 i just add them there?

Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, that is just a solution set as your question asks.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You could put any 3 numbers greater/ equal to 18...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now, how would you graph that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1437028983964:dw here I made a graph for you, now graph the expression \[x \ge 18\]

Astrophysics
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, you must read your question carefully, it asks you to solve the inequality, get a solution set and graph.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0THis is confusing O.o ??? I have no idea :(

Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, if I asked you to graph x = 18, how would you do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, that's not how you graph, compare it with mine, but x = 18 is just a vertical line. dw:1437029309947:dw

Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now you want greater than equal to, notice I made it a solid line for that purpose, when you have greater than/ less than with equal you make the line solid, when it's just greater/ less than than it's a dotted line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So we just shade in the area dw:1437029385587:dw that is \[x \ge 18\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To the right of the axis, as it's positive.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if the "alligator" Is facing left the shading goes right

Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, but you should not think like that, you should know it means greater than.
