# How do you solve 0.9x + 6 ≤ 1.3x - 3?

Jul 8, 2018

$x \ge 22.5$

#### Explanation:

Let's subtract $1.3 x$ from both sides to get

$- 0.4 x + 6 \le - 3$

Next, we can subtract $6$ from both sides to isolate the $x$ term. We now have

$- 0.4 x \le - 9$

Next, we can divide both sides by $- 0.4$. Recall that when we multiply or divide by a negative, the inequality flips. We now have

$x \ge 22.5$

Hope this helps!
