Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is the same as multiplying out by 1/2 hahaha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. Like I said before its not possible. It gives a decimal.... K? So then Id have to change both denominators to 10.

xapproachesinfinity

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No im not. You are making this impossible to understand. Ive waited 2 hours for help and now Im just confused. Normally you just divide it. And instead im suppose to multiple it. But all you did was change the denominator. Why???

xapproachesinfinity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes your answer is good @dinamix

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You said to multiply by 1/2 so I asked about changing both denominator to 10. And both times you did not respond. So im just suppose to do 5*2= 10 ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If I go off from what both of you said before by just multiplying by 1/2 then Ill just get 153/10 which is not the correct answer. Which also makes me think how you said to solve the first one is not the correct way to solve it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.136< 2x+18/5 +9/5 Just because I like to write the absolute value expression first then the inequality thingy.. \[2x+\frac{18}{5}+\frac{9}{5}>36 \\ \text{ so you subtracted } \frac{9}{5} \text{ on both sides } \\ 2x+\frac{18}{5}>36\frac{9}{5} \\ 2x+\frac{18}{5}> \frac{1809}{5} \\ 2x+\frac{18}{5} >\frac{171}{5} \\ \text{ now since this is a greater than we have a union } \\ \text{ that is we have } 2x+\frac{18}{5}<\frac{171}{5} \text{ or } 2x+\frac{18}{5}>\frac{171}{5} \\ \text{ for both inequalities subtract }\frac{18}{5} \text{ on both sides } \\ 2x<\frac{171}{5}\frac{18}{5} \text{ or } 2x> \frac{171}{5}\frac{18}{5} \\ \text{ simplifying right hand sides } \\ 2x <\frac{189}{5} \text{ or } 2x >\frac{153}{5} \\ \text{ now you can say divide both sides by 2 } \\ \text{ or equivalently say multiply both sides by } \frac{1}{2} \\ \text{ this is the same meaning just different saying } \] \[\frac{1}{2} \cdot (2x)>\frac{1}{2}(\frac{189}{5}) \text{ change direction of inequality symbol } \\ \text{ since I multiplied both sides by a negative } \\ x>\frac{189}{10} \\ \text{ now the other inequality } \\ \frac{1}{2}(2x)<\frac{1}{2}(\frac{153}{5}) \\ x<\frac{153}{10}\] so put the two pieces together and put or between them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Omg thank you @freckles I completely understood everything you said. And I saw where I messed up. I did write down the  for 171/5 so when I minused the 18 I had the wrong answer. Now I have the correct one and understand how to solve the ending.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so I retriceumed you subtracted x/5 on both sides and added 1/5 on both sides?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My example had me plus 1/5 to both sides. So I have x/4 </ x/5 +1 +1/5 Then add the +1 and 1/5 together x/4 </ x/5 +6/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Destinyyyy if you don't like the fractions before moving anything you can multiply both sides by 4*5=20

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[(20)(\frac{x}{4}\frac{1}{5} ) \le 20(\frac{x}{5}+1) \\ \frac{20}{4}x\frac{20}{5} \le \frac{20}{5}x+20 \\ 5x4 \le 4x+20\] this might make it easier for you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yep now if you didn't do the whole canceling fraction thing... \[\frac{x}{4}\frac{1}{5} \le \frac{x}{5}+1 \\ \text{ subtract } \frac{x}{5} \text{ on both sides } \\ \frac{x}{4} \frac{x}{5}\frac{1}{5} \le 1 \\ \text{ now add } \frac{1}{5} \text{ on both sides } \\ \frac{x}{4} \frac{x}{5} \le 1+\frac{1}{5} \\ \\ \text{ find common denominators } \\ \frac{5x4x}{20} \le \frac{5+1}{5} \\ \frac{1x}{20} \le \frac{6}{5} \\ \frac{x}{20} \le \frac{6}{5} \\ \text{ multiply both side by } 20 \\ x \le \frac{6(20)}{5} \\ x \le 6 \cdot \frac{20}{5} \\ x \le 6 (4) \\ x \le 24\] just so you know how it looks without removing fractions first
