Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Marcie solved the following inequality, and her work is shown below: −2(x − 5) − 12 ≤ 4 + 6(x + 3) −2x + 10 − 12 ≤ 4 + 6x + 18 −2x − 2 ≤ 6x + 22 −8x ≤ 24 x ≤ −3 What mistake did Marcie make in solving the inequality?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What mistake did Marcie make in solving the inequality? She subtracted 6x from both sides when she should have added 2x. She added 2 to both sides when she should have subtracted 22. When dividing by −8, she did not change the ≤ to ≥. She did not make a mistake

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you multiply or divide by a negative number when solving an inequality, you must reverse the sign. This example the last step did not flip the sign. it should have said x≥−3
