# How do you solve 8-2x is greater than or equal to -4?

$x \le 6$

#### Explanation:

$8 - 2 x \ge - 4$ is our equation

To solve for the inequality you do it normally like you would for an equation, although if you multiply or divide by a negative number you flip the inequality

$- 2 x \ge - 12$

Now we have to divide both sides by $- 2$ so we will flip the inequality

$x \le 6$
