Answer:

x<5.4

Explanation:

first we take away 9 on both sides so you get

-x>-5.4

then you divide -1 on both sides to make x positive so you get

x<5.4

and remember to change the sign so it will be opposite

Proper Solution:-

#9-x > 3.6# (take away 9 from both sides)

#-x > -5.4# (divide both sides by -1)

#x < 5.4# (And you get this)

Answer:

#x < 5.4#

Explanation:

Given
#color(white)("XXX")9-x > 3.6#

Remember you can add and/or subtract the same amount to both sides of an inequality.

Add #x# to both sides
#color(white)("XXX")9 > 3.6+x#

Subtract #3.6# from both sides
#color(white)("XXX")5.4 > x#
or (remembering that #color(blue)(a > b ) hArr color(green)(b < a)#
#color(white)("XXX")x < 5.4#
