Homework Help: Math- Reiny can you help me with this question

Posted by b6 on Friday, January 4, 2013 at 9:25am.

I know how to do the work, but the way the question is worded I am not sure the answer. The math works comes out to -2 which is b but if you want the number less than -2 the answer is c. Which are they asking for .
This is my work.
Which is the value is in the solution set for the inequality
-8-7x>6
A=-1
b=-2
c=-3
d=2
-8-7x>6
add 8 to each side
-7x>14
-7/-7>14/-7
x<-2
since it is less then -2 should the answer be c=-3
Thanks
