Determine whether the given numbers are solutions of the inequality.

t - 8 > 2t - 3

The given numbers are: 0, 3.3, -9, -3

I understand the problem and how to figure it out. Its just that when I tried this problem, none of the numbers worked. Did any work for you?

• Algebra -

I would solve the inequation:
t - 8 > 2t - 3
-t > 5
t < -5

now it is easy to see that only -9 would work.

• Thanks! -

Thank you so mcuh for your help! I completely understand it now!
