# How do you solve 1/3y>=5?

Aug 13, 2017

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Multiply each side of the inequality by $\textcolor{red}{3}$ to solve for $y$ while keeping the inequality balanced:

$\textcolor{red}{3} \times \frac{1}{3} y \ge \textcolor{red}{3} \times 5$

$\cancel{\textcolor{red}{3}} \times \frac{1}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{3}}}} y \ge 15$

$y \ge 15$
