# How do you solve 3k+8≥ 17?

Mar 27, 2018

#### Answer:

$k \ge 3$

#### Explanation:

We can basically solve for $k$, keeping the inequality sign:

$3 k + 8 \ge 17 \implies 3 k \ge 9 \implies k \ge 3$

We don't need to worry about flipping signs of the inequality because we're not dividing by any negatives or anything crazy like that.
