-q/7 (greater than or equal to sign) -1
How do I do this step by step I am very confused. Please help.

asked by Patrick
  1. -q/7 >= -1
    -q >= -7
    q <= 7

    remember to change direction when multiplying/dividing by negative values. It's just a shortcut for the required addition and subtraction:

    -q >= -7
    add q:
    0 >= -q+q
    add 7:
    7 >= q

    The result is the same.

  2. -q/7 ≥ -1

    Multiply both sides by 7

    -q ≥ -7

    q ≥ 7

  3. I think I somewhat understand this with the way you explained this. This is all new to me.

    Thank you for your help. :)

    I really don't understand this stuff for example: 9b-3b+34<2b-10 and 7a+3=24 letters represent variables so they can be anything really. Once you understand this step then the rest of the problem can start to make sense.

    In which step is the error? Step 1: Let x = 1 and y = 1. Step 2: By substitution xy = y^2. Step 3: Multiplying both sides by -1, -xy= -y^2. Step 4: Adding x^2 to both sides, x^2-xy=x^2-y^2. Step 5: Factoring, x(x-y)=(x+y)(x-y).
