Solving One-Step Inequalities

Solve each inequality.
1/5 is less than or equal to x/15

70-a is greater than or equal to 25

I am really confuse about this and I Don't want cheating, I just want steps because I am not really getting this at all. Thanks!

Also, this is for Ms.Sue, I know you say that you copy and paste the equation from a website but I really didn't have time to do that. Sorry

  1. 1/5 ≤ x/15
    Multiply both sides by 15.

    70-a ≤ 25
    Subtract 70 from both sides.

  2. 1/5 <= x/15
    multiply each side by 15
    3<=x

    70-a >=25
    add a to each side,
    70>=25+a
    subtact 25 from each side.
