multiply each term by 7 to get of fractions

-5x - 14 ≥ -7

-5x ≥ 7

x ≤ -7/5

I tried that and I came up with x< -1.4, is that correct?

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 ?

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?
