Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[−ax + 3b > 5\] subtract \(3b\) get \[ax>53b\] then divide by \(a\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now here is the mistake they want you to change the inequality, because they want you to think that \(a\) is negative that is sheer nonsense you do not know if \(a\) is negative or positive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in any case they want you to write \[x<\frac{53b}{a}\] or \[x<\frac{3b5}{a}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is totally incorrect, you should write them and tell them that anyone who thinks \(a\) is negative (because it has a minus sign) does not understand what a variable is and has no business trying to teach math or write math questions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My answers ar this though... x > the quantity 3 times b minus 5 all over a x > the quantity 5 minus 3 times b all over negative a x < the quantity 3 times b plus 5 all over a x < the quantity negative 3 times b plus 5 all over negative a @misty1212
