Lesson 24
EXAMPLE 1
X-2.7>1.3
   STRATEGY: Isolate the variable x.
   STEP 1: Add 2.7 to both sides.
x-2.7+2.7>1.3+2.7
x>4
   STEP 2: Check the answer by selecting a few
numbers.      5-2.7>1.3 OR 4.1-2.7>1.3
2.3>1.3             1.4>1.3

   SOLUTION: All numbers greater than 4.
EXAMPLE 2
4z +3 ≤ -5
   STRATEGY: Isolate the variable z.
   STEP 1: Subtract 3 from both sides.
4z+3-3 ≤ -5-3
4z ≤-8
   STEP 2: Divide both sides by 4. 4z/4 ≤-8/4
z ≤-2
   STEP 3: Check. 4(-3) +3 ≤-5
-12+3 ≤-5
-9 ≤-5
   SOLUTION: Numbers greater than or equal to -2.

9. Joel decides to collect baseball cards.
He buys 8 cards each week. He wants to
have at least 40 cards in his collection.
This inequality can be used to find the
number of weeks it will take him to reach
his goal. The variable w represents the
number of weeks. 8w≥40

 A.   8w/8 ≥ 40/8
w≥5
