Ok, i see that i should've have added the 3 - 11. Thank you so much!:) Have a great morning!

## #2 Re: Help Me ! » Linear equations » 2013-07-15 02:29:39

Ok, if you had to change 4x+11=6x-3 into a linear inequality how would you do it, and how would you solve it?

## #3 Re: Help Me ! » Linear equations » 2013-07-15 02:07:46

Good morning bobbym. Would i solve it like this

4x + 11 < 6x - 3

4x - 6x + 11 < - 6x - 6x - 3

2x + 11 -11 < -3 - 11

2x < - 8

-2x/-2 < -8/-2 = x < 4

and check it

4(4) + 11 < 6(4) - 3

16 + 11 < 24 - 3

27 < 27

No, i just need to change my 1-variable linear equation to a linear inequality using < or >.

## #5 Re: Help Me ! » Linear equations » 2013-07-13 04:16:59

So i would solve the linear inequality problem the same way i solve the linear equation, but replace the equal sign with < or >

## #6 Re: Help Me ! » Linear equations » 2013-07-13 04:03:12

I need to turn this linear equation 4x+11=6x-3 into a linear inequality.

## #7 Re: Help Me ! » Linear equations » 2013-07-13 03:52:07

ok, so how would you solve the equation using < or >.

## #8 Re: Help Me ! » Linear equations » 2013-07-13 03:35:27

Hi Bobbym, I need to change the linear equation 4x+11=6x-3 into a linear inequality (using < or >). Can it be done?

## #9 Re: Help Me ! » Linear equations » 2013-07-12 12:34:11

Hi guy's it's me again. How do i turn this linear equation 4x+11=6x-3 into an linear inequality? Would i write it like 4x<+11=6x<-2, and the lesser sign is underlined?

## #10 Re: Help Me ! » Linear equations » 2013-07-12 04:55:23

Variable, i knew the letter had a name i just coudln't think of it. Thank you so much for your help! You guy's are great! Have a Blessed day!

## #11 Re: Help Me ! » Linear equations » 2013-07-12 04:43:34

Hi bob, i want to thank both you and bobbym for your feed back. So i just replace the answer with what ever letter is presented to check my that the sollution is correct, right?

## #12 Re: Help Me ! » Linear equations » 2013-07-12 04:24:55

Hi bobbym, i first need to say that math is not my subject. With that said, is that how i check that the solution is a true statement?
