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
87x>6
A=1
b=2
c=3
d=2
87x>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

Math Reiny can you help me with this question  Reiny, Friday, January 4, 2013 at 9:36am
87x>6
7x > 6+8
7x > 14
x < 2
your work is ok
the problem is the way the question is worded, and your choice of answers.
Also, "Which is the value is in the solution set for the inequality"
should probably say
"Which is the value in the solution set for the inequality"
so 3 is the only value in your choices which are in the solution set.
Notice since it says < and NOT ≤, the 2 is not included.
