# How do you solve -2>=-d/34?

See the entire solution process below:

#### Explanation:

To solve for $d$ multiply each side of the inequality by $\textcolor{b l u e}{- 34}$ which will also keep the inequality balanced. However, because this is an inequality and we are multiplying or dividing by a negative term we must reverse the inequality term:

$\textcolor{b l u e}{- 34} \times - 2 \textcolor{red}{\le} \textcolor{b l u e}{- 34} \times - \frac{d}{34}$

$68 \textcolor{red}{\le} - \cancel{\textcolor{b l u e}{34}} \times - \frac{d}{\textcolor{b l u e}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{34}}}}$

$68 \textcolor{red}{\le} - - d$

$68 \le d$

To solve in terms of $d$ we must reverse or "flip" the inequality:

$d \ge 68$
