Solve the inequality.  5x / 7 2>1

College Algerbra 
Reiny,
multiply each term by 7 to get of fractions
5x  14 ≥ 7
5x ≥ 7
x ≤ 7/5 
College Algerbra 
Eric,
I tried that and I came up with x< 1.4, is that correct?

College Algerbra 
Reiny,
well, what is 7/5 ??

College Algerbra 
Eric,
I don't know, 35? I stink at math and all of it's many steps.

College Algerbra 
Reiny,
I am sorry, but I find it extremely odd that you call these questions "College Algebra" and you don't know what
7 ÷ 5 is .
What "college" are you attending ? 
College Algerbra 
Eric,
I know right? I almost did not pass my ability to benefit test to get into Barstow College my math skills were so bad. So would the answer be x<_1.4?

College Algerbra 
Reiny,
yes

College Algerbra 
Eric,
Thanks!
