Add to both sides. Subtract from both sides. Combine like terms on the left side. Combine like terms on the right side. Divide both sides by to isolate . note: Remember, the inequality sign flips when we divide both sides by a negative number. Reduce. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Answer: So the answer is So ANY number that is less than -5 is a solution to the original inequality. So for example, 6 is NOT a solution as it is NOT less than -5. However, -19 and -12 are both solutions since they are both less than -5. Alternatively, you can plug in each possible solution into the given inequality and evaluate each side. If you get a true statement, then that given possible solution is actually a solution. If you get a false statement, then it's not a solution. If you need more help, email me at jim_thompson5910@hotmail.com Also, feel free to check out my tutoring website Jim

 Solved by pluggable solver: Reducing Fractions Calculator In order to reduce , the numerator and denominator must share a common factor. This common number must evenly divide into both of them without any remainder or decimal. In order to completely reduce the fraction, you must divide the numerator and the denominator by the greatest common factor (GCF). The GCF of and is (note: click here if you need help with finding the GCF). So divide both the numerator and denominator by In other words, to reduce the fraction you do this Plug in the numerator, denominator, and the GCF Now divide 36 by 12 to get 3. This is now the new numerator. Now divide 24 by 12 to get 2. This is now the new denominator. So This means that reduces to In other words,
