I know these really well, but ive tried alot and couldn't get the same answer as the book.!

1-(3x/2) <. 4

• Math question -

If 1-(3x/2) <. 4 mean :

1 - ( 3 x / 2 ) < 0.4 then Subtract 1 to both sides

1 - ( 3 x / 2 ) - 1 < 0.4 - 1

- 3 x / 2 < - 0.6 Multiply both sides by 2

- 3 x < - 1.2 Divide both sides by - 3

Remark:

When you multiply or divide inequality with negative number, you must change the direction of the inequality.
________________________________________

x > - 1.2 / - 3

x > 0.4
