Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you just have to find the one that still means the same thing. the first part says that 22 is bigger than 5x7 so if the sign become smaller than instead you put 5x7 first because 22 is still bigger so the first part can be 5x7 < 22 The second part says that the first equation is bigger than or equal to 3, changing around the order of the first equation doesn't change this fact because the first part would still yield the same answer, which would still be bigger than or equal to 3 All you have to do is determine which equation set given to you means the same thing as the original equation. I would say that the answer is a.
