# How do you solve 2(n-5)<= -7?

$n \le \frac{3}{2}$

#### Explanation:

From the given

$2 \left(n - 5\right) \le - 7$

$2 n - 10 \le - 7$
Add 10 to both sides of the inequality

$2 n - 10 + 10 \le - 7 + 10$

$2 n \le 3$

Divide both sides of the inequality by 2

$\frac{2 n}{2} \le \frac{3}{2}$

$\frac{\cancel{2} n}{\cancel{2}} \le \frac{3}{2}$

$n \le \frac{3}{2}$

God bless...I hope the explanation is useful.
