Let's solve your inequality step-by-step. x 5 >−3 Step 1: Simplify both sides of the inequality. 1 5 x>−3 Step 2: Divide both sides by 1/5. 1 5 x 1 5 > −3 1 5 x>−15 Answer: x>−15

$$\dfrac{x}{5} \ge -3$$ Okay, to get x by itself we have to multiply 5 to both sides. So what's 5 * -3? @pigglet

I clearly said, dont give me the answer, walk me through it @gahm8684 @aero87 @iGreen -15?

OpenStudy (igreen):

Yes, therefore that gives us: $$x \ge -15$$

5 was being divided by 'x'..so we have to do the opposite and multiply it.
