Answer:

See the entire solution process below:

Explanation:

To solve for #d# multiply each side of the inequality by #color(blue)(-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:

#color(blue)(-34) xx -2 color(red)(<=) color(blue)(-34) xx -d/34#

#68 color(red)(<=) -cancel(color(blue)(34)) xx -d/color(blue)(cancel(color(black)(34)))#

#68 color(red)(<=) - -d#

#68 <= d#

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

#d >= 68#
