Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What do you need help solving. Treat is as if it was a regular equation. Pretend there is a = sign there.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can you solve then? Remember anytime you divide by a negative number, you switch the sign (in the end)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, pretend you have: np  90 = 30 can you solve for n now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It wouldn't be any different if there was a number on there. Same proceduce.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I would have n  90 < 30/p ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. First, add 90 to both sides, as i told you to do so earlier. That way, you isolate the np by itself.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then you have: \(\sf \color{red}{np < 30 + 90}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now I have np < 120

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Next divide by \(\sf \sf \color{red}{p}\) remeber i said when you divide by a negative number, you re actually flipping the sign of the inequality.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And you've solved for it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So n>120/p is the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can you also help me with 5m  3h = 45

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. you cannot have a negative answer, it must be positive! It wouldn't make sense to say a negative number is greater than a positive, assuming p > 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05m3h = 45 what are you solving for?
