 Question 93709: the product of nine and the quanity 5 more than a number tis less than 6 Found 2 solutions by bucky, praseenakos@yahoo.com:Answer by bucky(2189)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The quantity 5 more than t is (5 + t) . the product of 9 and that quantity is 9(5+t) which multiplies out to 45 + 9t. . Finally, that result is less than 6. So the equation becomes: . . This inequality is solvable for +t. Start by getting rid of 45 on the left side by subtracting 45 from both sides to get: . . which simplifies to: . . Then you can solve for t by dividing both sides by +9 to get: . . Note that the numerator and denominator of the right side are both divisible by 3. When you divide them both by 3 the inequality simplifies to: . . This means that the original inequality will be true whenever t is less than which means whenever t on the number line is to the left of the point . . That's the answer to the original problem. . Hope that this helps you to understand problem wording a little better and shows you the way that the problem can be worked all the way to an answer for t. .
