# How do you solve 4x +8 <= 6x -20?

Nov 8, 2017

$x \ge 14$

#### Explanation:

Pretend that your $\le$ here is just a plain old $=$. Balance it like you always would :)

$4 x + 8 \le 6 x - 20$ Subtract $6 x$ from both sides

$- 2 x + 8 \le - 20$ Subtract $8$ from both sides

$- 2 x \le - 28$ Divide both sides by $- 2$ and do not forget to flip the sign because you're dividing by a negative number!

$x \ge 14$
