3x + 4 > 9, with x = 2

determine whether or not the solution provided is a solution to the inequality. If the value he or she provides is a solution, provide a value that is not a solution. If the value is not a solution, provide a value that is a solution.

3x+4>9

3(2)+4>9

6+4>9

10>9

The value x=2 is a solution to the inequality. A value of x that would not be a solution would be any value lesser than 2, such as 1,0, or -1.

3x + 4 > 9,

Solve the inequality

3x + 4 > 9

3x > 5

x > 5/3 = 1.67

Therefore, for x to be a solution,

x > 1.67

You should be able to finish the problem from here.

If the value is a solution then it will make the statement true when it is substituted in.

3*2+4=10

10 is grater then 9 so 2 is a solution.

To get a number that makes this false we can solve

3x+4=9.

X=5/3
