Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you're working with inequalities it's the same as you are doing with a regular equation just with a few added rules, suck as if you multiply or divide by a negative your inequality sign flips.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So to get x on it's own, use regular algebra, basically use the opposite operation of what already exists and what you do to one side you must also do to the other!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if we're solving for x... that variable has to be alone by itself.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Notice how the a is "attached" to the x, so it's being multiplied, as I told you above, do the opposite operation of what already exists to both sides.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Divide So it would be x < 2b+8/a

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes because we have to divide everything by a . On top of that we have a negative sign so we have to switch the inequality symbol from > to <
