**Damon**, Friday, May 2, 2008 at 9:55pm3.5 + 19.8 - 49.5 > -6.4 x

divide both sides by -6.4

change direction of arrow from > to < because that is the rule if you multiply or divide both sides of an inequality by a negative number.

**danette**, Friday, May 2, 2008 at 10:04pmThanks, I understand that but what is the answer?

**drwls**, Saturday, May 3, 2008 at 8:28amThe left side of Damon's equation

is -26.2 after you add up the three constants. So write

-26.2 > -6.4x and proceed as DamonC2 recommended.

The answer I get ix x > 4.09375
