-7x < -42
To solve for the inequality, we need to simplify for x and ensure we've carefully answered the question.
Currently, x is being multiplied by -7.
To get x by itself, we need to perform the opposite of what's being done.
Remember, what you do to one side of an equation/inequality, you must do to the other.
The opposite of multiplying is dividing.
Divide -7x by -7 to get x.
-7x / -7 = x
-42 / -7 = 6 (Dividing a negative by a negative makes a positive, the same goes with multiplying)
You're left with x < 6
When we divide/multiply by a negative, we need to flip the inequality with the opposite value.
Your final inequality is:
x _> 6
I hope this helps you. :)
the x's and the y's both go up the same amount each time, therefore it will be a linear function because it will go in a straight line when drawn on a graph.
hope this !
