Did I do this correctly?

13 - (2c + 2) >(pretend it has the line under it that means greater than or equal to) 2(c + 2) + 3c

13 -2c -2 (greater than or equal to) 5c + 4

11c (greater than or equal to) 7c + 4

-7c to both sides

4c (greater than or equal to) 4

divide both sides by 4

c is greater than or equal to 1

Thanks!

13-(2c+2)>= 2(c+2)+3c

13-2c-2>=5c+4

11>=7c+4(((((this varies from yours, from here onward))))

7>=7c

c is less than or equal to 1

How did you get the 7 > 7c?

If you follow my work, you get it. I subtracted 2 from 13 to get 11, then subtacted 4 from both sides.

Thank you! I don't know why I didn't see that.
