The sheet is titled Solving Inequalities. I need to solve this question by equivalent equations and show my steps.
So, how do I solve 6x<12?
Would I divide both sides by 6 meaning x would = 2? or??

Math 
Molly,
yes! and dividing by 6 would make sense because it would read x<2 or x is less than 2.

Math 
Tyler,
Is there a spot online that would show how to show this on a line graph that shows 5  4  3 2 1 0 1 2 3 4 ?

Math 
Molly,
Not that I can think of...I think I remember using a line graph where you circle the number (2 in the last case) and since it is not equal to x, you don't darken it in, then draw a line that extends to all numbers less than 2. x is somewhere in there.

Math 
Tyler,
Do I include the negative numbers?

Math 
Molly,
Yes. Draw a line from 5 to 5 and fill it out from there.
