Hey, just need a quick explanation on what I should do for this problem.
3x greater than or equal to 12 AND 8x less than or equal to 16. I must graph them once I get the solution.
I've already gotten x is less than or equal to 4 for the first equation and x is greater than or equal to 2 for the second part. My main issue is that when it says AND in the beginning part doesn't that mean that they should overlap when I graph it? Did I do it wrong? I thought I was supposed to flip the signs when I divide.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The sign does not flip here. You divide both sides by 3, which is a positive number. The sign only flips if you divide both sides by a negative number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah the sign will also flip if you multiply both sides by a negative number
