If you are simply looking for an answer without learning how to figure things out, you may prefer to simply punch such a question into a calculator such as Wolfram Alpha. My example question is this:
To solve "inequalities" you can use almost the exact same steps for normal equations, except that multiplying or dividing by a negative on both sides leads to reversing the direction of the inequality. Thus, I first subtract 2.4 from each side in order to get closer to having x isolated by itself on one side:
Now, to finish isolating x, I need to divide both sides by 0.3. Since this is a negative number, I need to flip the direction of the inequality:
This is the simplified answer to the example question. I hope you find this helpful in solving your own question.
