Solving One-Step Inequalities

Solving One-Step Inequalities 1.1 - Solution

arrow_back Return to Solving One-Step Inequalities
a

To solve the inequality we can divide both sides by 7.7.

7x>-217x\gt\text{-}21
x>-3x\gt\text{-}3

x>-3x\gt\text{-}3 solves the inequality.

b
Here we have a negative on both sides. We can solve it by multiplying (or dividing) both sides by -1.\text{-}1. But we have to remember to flip the inequality sign.
-z<-10\text{-} z\lt\text{-}10
z>10z\gt10

The solution set is z>10.z\gt10.
