What is the solution of -4x +1 > or equal to 7
I get these really confused on how to solve these.
-4x + 1 >= 7
Solve this as you would if there was just an "=" sign. But, anytime you multiply or divide both sides by a negative number the inequality sign will reverse.
To get you started...
Subtract 1 from both sides.
is the answer x <=3/2
You have the inequality correct, but when you divided both sides by -4, you you have an error on the right side.
6/(-4) = ?
It should be x<= -3/2, correct
Yes, you got it!
Thanks Quidditch-I appreciate it
Glad to help
