can someone correct this for me:

Translate the following statements into inequalities. Let x represent the number in each case.

2 times a number, increased by 28, is less than or equal to 6 times that number.

-
the symbol that i'm using after the number 28 and before the 6 is the crocadile mouth eating number 6 with a line underneath the crocadile sign.

You did that correctly. Very good.
I and some others often choose to write <= for "less than or equal to", because of difficulty getting the underline to go beneath the "crocodile mouth" with computer keyboard commands.

2x+28<6x

4 4

7<x
=x>7

• math,algebra -

2x+28<6x
Step 1: Subtract the ones with the same variables...
2x+28<6x
-2x. -2x
--------------
28<4x
Step 2: Divide the numbers
28/4=7. 4/4x=x
7<x OR x>7
