# math inequalities

posted by B6

I wrote a question before but the greater than or equal to sign cameout as something else, so here is the question
3/4x>1/4x+8
I did -1/4 x to each side to get
2/4x>8
4/1*2/4x>8/1*4/12/2x>8/1*4/1
x>16
The question uses> with the line under it, making it greater than or equal to but my computer won't allow me to underline the> sign.
I believe I did this correctly but just wanted to double check it.
Thanks B

3x/4 >= x/4+8.
Multiply both sides by 4:
3x >= x+32
2x >= 32
X >= 16.
