4^2(4squared)>or=-2(x-5)
16>or=-2x+10
-10 to both sides
6>or=-2x
6/-2>or=-2x/-2
-3<or=x
I believe this is correct and I changed the direction of< since we divided by a neg.
Did I get the correct answer
Thanks and Happy New Year

  • math -

    16 ≥ -2x + 10
    2x ≥ -6
    x ≥ -3

    usually we put the variable on the left side, but you are correct

    2x + 1/2 = x/2 + 1/3 Subtract the x/2 from both sides to get 2x + 1/2 - x/2 = + 1/3 Now subtract 1/2 from both sides to get 2x + - x/2 = 1/3 - 1/2 Then combine terms on both sides and solve for x. Subtract the x/2 from both sides to …

    Damon, Thanks for the help. Let me see if I get it now. So, -2x < -4 divide both sides by -2 answer is x > 2 I had x < 2, but I reverse the sign since I divided by a -2 on both sides, correct?
