# How do you solve 2/8x-13> -6?

Jun 14, 2018

$x > 28$

#### Explanation:

Note: I added a variable $x$ to the given inequality so this question was meaningful.

Remember: you can add or subtract any amount to both sides of an inequality and multiply or divide both sides by any positive amount without changing the validity or direction of the inequality.

Given
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} \frac{2}{8} x - 13 > - 6$

Adding both $13$ to both sides:
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} \frac{2}{8} x > 7$

Multiplying both sides by $8$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} 2 x > 56$

Dividing both sides by $2$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} x > 28$
