  1. 3.5 + 19.8 - 49.5 > -6.4 x
    divide both sides by -6.4
    change direction of arrow from > to < because that is the rule if you multiply or divide both sides of an inequality by a negative number.

  3. The left side of Damon's equation
    is -26.2 after you add up the three constants. So write
    -26.2 > -6.4x and proceed as DamonC2 recommended.

    The answer I get ix x > 4.09375
