can someone correct this for me:
Translate the following statements into inequalities. Let x represent the number in each case.
2 times a number, increased by 28, is less than or equal to 6 times that number.
My answer: 2x+28 <6x

the symbol that i'm using after the number 28 and before the 6 is the crocadile mouth eating number 6 with a line underneath the crocadile sign.
You did that correctly. Very good.
I and some others often choose to write <= for "less than or equal to", because of difficulty getting the underline to go beneath the "crocodile mouth" with computer keyboard commands.
