ok

OpenStudy (yacoub1993):

$\frac{ 4 }{ 5 }x+5<-3$ frist i solved the frist equation $\frac{ 4 }{ 5 }x+5=0$ $\frac{ 4 }{ 5 }x=-5$ $x=\frac{ -5 }{ \frac{ 4 }{ 5 } }$ $x=-6.25$ $-6.25<-3$ thats the way i did it] correct me if i am wrong

OpenStudy (yacoub1993):

wait i will resolve it

5 years ago
OpenStudy (yacoub1993):

Yes i got the same answer bro

what do u think the correct answer?

OpenStudy (saifoo.khan):

OpenStudy (yacoub1993):

$-x \ge-8$

5 years ago
OpenStudy (saifoo.khan):

Right. But we can't have a negative sign with the variable, right?

5 years ago
OpenStudy (yacoub1993):

what do u mean

5 years ago
OpenStudy (saifoo.khan):

We can NEVER write something with a negative variable. Like here "-x" Negative x is something which we can't write.

5 years ago
OpenStudy (saifoo.khan):

So to get rid of it, we have to flip the inequatlity. I'll show you how..
