Which of the following values is in the solution set of the inequality -8-7x>-6
a) 2
b) -2
c) -3
d) -1

• math -

just plug in the values. which one works?

-8-7(2) = -8 - 14 = -22 not > -6
-8-7(-2) = -8 + 14 = 6 > -6 OK
-8-7(-3) = -8+21 = 13 > -6 OK
-8-7(-1) = -8+7 + -1 > -6 OK

So, is the question missing a "not"?
