Solve the inequality. - 5x / 7 -2>-1

• College Algerbra -

multiply each term by 7 to get of fractions

-5x - 14 ≥ -7
-5x ≥ 7
x ≤ -7/5

• College Algerbra -

I tried that and I came up with x< -1.4, is that correct?

• College Algerbra -

well, what is -7/5 ??

• College Algerbra -

I don't know, -35? I stink at math and all of it's many steps.

• College Algerbra -

I am sorry, but I find it extremely odd that you call these questions "College Algebra" and you don't know what
7 ÷ 5 is .

What "college" are you attending ?

• College Algerbra -

I know right? I almost did not pass my ability to benefit test to get into Barstow College my math skills were so bad. So would the answer be x<_-1.4?

• College Algerbra -

yes

• College Algerbra -

Thanks!
