 Question 119226: CAn you help me with these 2 problems? -3x+6/2 < 12 and 11y+13 > -1 Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15649)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Assume you mean: : < 12 : Get rid of the fraction, multiply both sides by 2 and you have -3x + 6 < 24 : -3x < 24 - 6 : -3x < 18 : We need of have x positive, multiply both sides by -1 This reverses the inequality sign +3x > -18 : x > -18/3 : x > -6 : Check solution. -5 is greater than -6, try x = -5 in the original equation -3(-5) + 6 < 24 +15 + 6 = 21 which is < 24 so it is true : If you try x = -7, you will find it is not true : : 11y + 13 > -1 11y > -1 - 13 11y > -14 y > : Did this make sense to you?
