Solve the inequality. So i have done this problem at least three times and I keep getting the same answer. But in the back of the book the correct answer for this problem is x<or equal to 5

This is what I did & my answer dosen't match the one in the back of the book:

-9(x-3)-8(4-x)> or equal to -2x

-9x+27-32+8 > or equal to -2x

-9x+3 > or equal to -2x

added 9x to both sides

3> or equal to 7x

divided both sides by 7

My answer: x< or equal to 7/3
