**Reiny**, Saturday, October 4, 2008 at 8:52pmThose are a lot of questions, try to break up your posts into smaller bits

Most of your answers are correct, I found a few that had errors.

(wish you had "numbered" your questions)

<<Q:solve using multiplication principle then graph

- 15x > - 75

A: {x | x > 5}

when graphing the circle is open on the 5 and goes to the right >>

When you multiply or divide an inequation by a negative, you have to reverse the inequality sign, so ...

- 15x > - 75

x < 5 would be your inequation, the graph would go to the left.

You made the same error in

<<Q: solve using the multiplication principle

- 6x < - 18

the solution set is {x | x ? ?}

A: {x | x < 3} >>

should be x > 3

in

<<Q: solve

y - 3 > - 13

the solution is {x | x > ?}

A: {x | x > - 10} >>

you switched from y's to x's, why?

I meant: {y | y > - 10}

thank you for your help
