the sign is an inequality equal greater or lesser than sign
would I substitute the sign for an equal sign and then divide 35 by -7

  • Math (Algebra) -

    -7x <_ 35 or
    -7x ≤ 35 , divide by -7
    x ≥ -5

    remember that if you multiply or divide by a negative number, the sign of inequality has to be reversed.
