Hi. I have an answer for this and just need to confirm it. 2x+5(less than or equal to sign here)x + 6.

I minused the x's on both sides of the greater then equal to sign; x +5 (greater then or equal to sign) = 6; x +5-5 (the sign here) 6-5 gives me x (greater than equal to sign) = 1
Thank you!

Hi! I am gonna use (<=) for greater than or egual to sign... Im just gonna work it on here, so we can just compare work:

x+5<=6
-5 -5
x<= 1
you have to do this to get x by itself you would get

You were right!!! GREAT JOB!!!
