Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would i subtract 1 to the other side or subtract it with 4 first?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3the 4 is being multiply to n+2 so u cant subtract 1frm the 4.... however you can subtract 1 frm both sides of the inequality to get 4n+2<231

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But i'm supposed to isolate the absolute value first.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3after that we can divide both sides by 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then we subtract 2 with 6 so n<4 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3what? n+2<24/4 n+2<6 we now get rid of the absolute value be spliting the inequality ... making 1positive and 1negative ..like this (n+2)<6 and (n+2)<6 we now solve for n

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is kind of different to what my teacher taught... Example: 3b+810<5 then make a negative equation: 3b+810>5 +10 +10 (signs are switched) +10 +10   3b+8<15 3b+8>15   3 3 b+8<5 b+8>5 8 8 8 8   b<3 b>13

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yes it shd be n+2>6 and n+2<6 i made and error not switching the first sign shd be n+2>6 n>4 and n<8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is an error in the example the 2nd equation should have been 5 instead of 5 to be equaled to 15 when adding 10.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.33b+810>5 then we add 10 to bot sides we get 3b+8>5+10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3we then divide both sides by 3 to get b+8>10/3
