answers would be x>=16

x>=7/2

7/2<=x<=16

x<=16

I don't get this concept at all and I have 20 of these kinds of problems for homeowrk-can someone direct me how to start or give me an example or just help please? I really need to figure out this concept

Thank you

Since both left and right side are positive we don't have to worry about any changes in direction of the inequality sign.

So square both sides

2x-7 ≥ 25

2x ≥ 32

x ≥ 16

and of course for √(2x-7) to be a real number, the inside must be ≥ 0

that is, 2x-7 ≥ 0

2x ≥ 7

x ≥ 7/2

so now you have x ≥ 7/2 AND x ≥ 16

which set of numbers satisfies BOTH conditions?

It would be x ≥ 16

(take x = 5 for an example

it satisfies the first condition, in that it is ≥ 7/2

but does not work for the original inequation. )

Thanks again

What don't you understand?

to solve, square both sides to get rid of the radical

2x - 7 >= 25

2x >= 32

x >= 16
