# How do you solve and graph -16c>=-224?

Jul 10, 2016

$c \le 14$

Graphed on a number line:

#### Explanation:

Method 1:
Remember multiplication or division of an inequality by a negative reverses the inequality.

Dividing both sides of $- 6 c \ge - 224$ by $\left(- 16\right)$
gives $c \le 14$

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Method 2:
Add $16 c + 224$ to both sides
giving $224 \le 16 c$
then divide both sides by $16$
to get $14 \le c$
