  1. First, that's equal to, NOT too!
    It's a lot easier just to write x >= 2.
    With that said, let's proceed.

    #1: ok
    #2: ok

    #3: Hmmm. This one is no harder than the first two, just a bit longer.
    4(1-3n)-14>4(2n+3)-9n
    4-12n-14 > 8n+12-9n
    -12n-10 > -n+12
    -11n > 22
    n < -2

    #5,6: ok

    #7: oops - should have been
    -p/7>-9
    -p>-63
    p<+63 since -63/-1 = +63

    #8:same thing here. When you change sign, you must change it on both sides of the inequality, just as you would in an equation.
    -t/12>=6
    -t >= 72
    t <= -72

    #9: same again.
    -y<36
    y > -36

    #10: ok

    #11: You had trouble with this easy easy one? You got #5 ok, and it's just the same.
    1/8 n <= 3
    n <= 24

    #12: "no more than" mean "less than or equal", not "less than", so
    -12n <= 84
    n >= -7

    #13: again, just as easy as the others.
    -1/6 n < -9
    n > 54

    #14: ok

    Looks like you need to review working with negative values.
