1)-5 <= -3X+1 < 1
2)4X-2 < 6 OR X+2 > 9
Please help me with this problem! I am going CRAZY!!!!!!!!!
Let's do the second problem first. there are two inequalities and I am going to solve them separately.
For the second inequality, X+2 > 9, subtract 2 from each side to get
Thus the answer to your second problem is
The first problem is also two inequalities but you can solve both of them at the same time. First subtract 1 from both sides of each inequality.
Now multiply both sides of each inequality by -1/3. This time, since you are multiplying by a negative quantity, the direction of the inequalities reverse.
