Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's also 6x3. 1 * 3 = 3. The equation now looks like 6x  3 => 8x  15 Now, solve the inequality by isolating x. Hint! Subtract 6x from both sides of the equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02x3=>15 add 3 to both sides right? and I would get 12?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so the equation is −3≥8x−15−6x. It simplifies into −3≥2x−15. Now, add 15 to both sides to get 2x by itself.
