1. Solve for x. Collect xs on the LEFT side. The solution should be presented with x first, the correct inequality symbol, then the number.
5(2x – 7) < -8
10x -25< -8
I think you only change the sign when you move a negative by multiplication or division, so I think the sign is correct.
You might want to reference your book though.
There is an error in the second line.
10x - 35 < -8
ah, typo, sorry.
Thanks for your response Adam and Quidditch. You've been a great help!
