so we have 8 ≥ 3x + 5 and we want to isolate x, what is the first thing you would want to do?

  • anonymous
bring it to both sides???
FireKat97
  • FireKat97
not quite, you want to first simplify the whole numbers, (8 and 5), to do this, without changing the equation, you can subtract 5 from both the left and right sides, so- 8 - 5 ≥ 3x + 5 - 5 so this simplifies to 3 ≥ 3x

What do you think would be the next step to isolate x?

okay um...I really want to say divide it from the 3 but I'm most likely wrong.
FireKat97
  • FireKat97
no, thats actually correct! You want to divide both sides by 3. so you get 3/3 ≥ 3x/3 which simplifies down to 1 ≥ x

Oh, well then. So if it's that simple what's with the two sentence thing?

I think you're meant to draw the number line graph representing your answer and just a line or two explaining what the answer means exactly

so try drawing up a line graph and describing your solution in a line or two

Okay seems a bit pointless to do all that but alright. Thank you for your help.
