Homework Help: Inequalities Can You Help A GAL Out? THANKS

  1. Oct 29, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The Questions are 2x - 3 > x + 15
    -4 x = 2 < 10 ( I am not sure how to place a line under the < on my computer)
    and -5x + 1 < -2x + 10

    I have never done these type questions before and if anyone is really good at explaining the answers, I would greatly appreciate it so very much.


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    These aren't questions: presumably you are asked to solve for x.

    Would you be able to rearrange, say, 2x-3=x+15? What would you get?
