An inequality is shown below:
np  5 ≤ 4(c  2)
Which of the following solves for n?
n ≥  the quantity 4 times c minus 3 all over p
n ≥  the quantity 4 times c minus 13 all over p
n ≤  the quantity 4 times c minus 3 all over p
n ≤  the quantity 4 times c minus 13 all over p

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0n that gives us n ≤ (4c  3)/p now multiply both sides by 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so multiply the 4c and 3 by 1 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, just put a negative sign in front that gives us (4c3)/p

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when we multiply or divide by a negative number, the inequality flips, giving us n >= (4c3)/p and thats our final answer ~
