5x+16 greater than 1 and 2x-21 greater than -17.

  • math -

    5x + 16 > 1

    Subtract 16 from both sides.

    5x > -15

    Divide both sides by 5. (You solve just like an equation, except If you multiply/divide by a negative value, then you have to reverse the carat.)

    x > -3

    Use the same principles to solve the second inequality.
