Q:
# [02.05]Solve for x: 4 − (x + 2) < −3(x + 4) (1 point)x < −7x > −7x < −9x > −9

Accepted Solution

A:

first, get rid of the paranthesis:

4-x-2<-3x-12 => 2-x<-3x-12

next, eliminate x on one side. here I'll eliminate -3x by adding 3x on both side:

2+2x<-12

2x<-14

x<-7

4-x-2<-3x-12 => 2-x<-3x-12

next, eliminate x on one side. here I'll eliminate -3x by adding 3x on both side:

2+2x<-12

2x<-14

x<-7
