What is the solution of -4x +1 > or equal to 7

I get these really confused on how to solve these.

Thank you

  • Algebra -

    -4x + 1 >= 7

    Solve this as you would if there was just an "=" sign. But, anytime you multiply or divide both sides by a negative number the inequality sign will reverse.

    To get you started...
    Subtract 1 from both sides.

    is the answer x <=3/2

  • Algebra -

    Close...
    You have the inequality correct, but when you divided both sides by -4, you you have an error on the right side.

    6/(-4) = ?

  • Algebra -

    It should be x<= -3/2, correct

  • Algebra -

    Yes, you got it!
