# How do you solve 50 ≥ 15x?

May 9, 2015

Things you can do to both sides of an inequality without effecting the orientation of the inequality:
1. Add or subtract any value
2. Multiply or divide by any value greater than 0.

Given $50 \ge 15 x$
we can divide both sides by $15$
$\frac{10}{3} \ge x$

If you want the $x$ on the left side make sure that you "flip" the inequality as well as the values:
$x \le \frac{10}{3}$
