Are you trying to figure out which side of the equation is greater than?

If so this is how it comes out if I remember correctly from my previous MAT class.

0.9x + 9 < 1.7x-8

9.9x>-6.3

0.9X + 9 <= 1.7X - 8.

Add -1.7X AND -9 to both sides:

0.9X - 1.7X <= -8 -9,

Combine like-terms:

-0.8X <= -17,

Divide both sides by -0.8 and reverse inequality sign:

X => 21.25.
