## anonymous one year ago Solve the compound inequality 9 + 3n >= 6 or 5n < 25. a. n less than or greater to −1 or n < 5 b. n greater than or equal to −5 or n > 5 c. n greater than or equal to −1 or n < 5 d. n less than or greater to −5 or n > 5

$$\bf{9+3n≥6~or~5n<25}$$

2. Mehek14

let's do the simple one first $$\bf{5n<25}$$

3. Mehek14

divide $$\dfrac{25}{5}$$

4. anonymous

n< 5

5. Mehek14

correct b and c are out

6. Mehek14

now $$\bf{9+3n≥6}$$ subtract 6 - 9

7. anonymous

3n ≥ -3

8. Mehek14

correct now divide $$\bf{\dfrac{-3}{3}}$$

9. anonymous

-1

10. anonymous

So it would be A?

11. Mehek14

no the sign stays ≥ because you didn't divide by a negative so C

12. anonymous

Ohhh

13. anonymous

Thank you that makes more sense now

14. Mehek14

anytime ^_^
