 Jan 17, 2011 Rating Solving Inequalities by: Karin In this application, I cannot type a less than or equal to sign. Therefore, I will use the less than symbol, but please note that we will consider it the less than or equal to symbol. -6< 3x -15< 12 We want to isolate the variable, so we will add 15 to both sides. -6+15 <3x - 15+15 < 12+ 15 9 <3x< 27 Now we need to divide everything by 3 to isolate x. 9/3 < 3x/3 <27/3 3 < x < 9 You end up with 3 is less than or equal to x and x is less than or equal to 9. This means that x is greater than or equal to 3 but less than or equal to 9. Hope this helps, Karin
