Q:
# Which value of x is in the solution set of the following inequality -x+8 greater than 6

Accepted Solution

A:

[tex] - x + 8 > 6[/tex]

subtract 8 on both sides

[tex] - x > - 2[/tex]

then divide -x on both sides

then you get

[tex]x < 2[/tex]

when you divide or multiply by a negative the sign would flip in this case it went from greater than to less than.

[tex] - x + 8 > 6[/tex]

subtract 8 on both sides

[tex] - x > - 2[/tex]

then divide -x on both sides

then you get

[tex]x < 2[/tex]

when you divide or multiply by a negative the sign would flip in this case it went from greater than to less than.
