I cannot come up with the correct answer for this problem. Please help
3.5+19.8>49.56.4x=

algebra 
Damon,
3.5 + 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,
Thanks, I understand that but what is the answer?

algebra 
drwls,
The 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
