**Algebra**

Oops. I read ahead. You (and of course, Reiny!) are correct

**Algebra**

False. Multiplying by negative values reverses the direction. It is really just a shorthand way of swapping sides. -2x-20 >= 75 add 2x to get -20 >= 75+2x subtract 75 -95 >= 2x Now the 2x is on the small side of the inequality, so it's the same as 2x <= -95

**algebra1**

check the ratio between terms. If it is constant, you have a GP. For example, check the first 3 terms of f(x) = -7x+3 f(1) = -4 f(2) = -11 f(3) = -18 (-11)/(-4) ? (-18)/(-11) so not a GP Use ^ for exponents, as in x^7 and 7^x
