subtract 9

.9x<=1.7x-17

divide by .9

x<= 1.7x/9-17/9

subtract 1.7x/9 from each side

x(1-1.7/9)<=-17/9

x(1-.19)<=-17/9

divide both sides by .81 and you have it.

check my thinking.

0.9X + 9 <= 1.7X - 8.

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

-0.8X <= -17,

Divide both sides by -0.8 and reverse

inequality sign:

X >= 21.25.
