# How do you solve the inequality 24-0.6x<60?

Nov 23, 2015

$x < - 60$

#### Explanation:

Solve as if the $<$ sign were an $=$ sign.

Subtract $24$ from each side.

$- 0.6 x < 36$

Divide both sides by $- 0.6$. CAREFUL! When multiplying or dividing by a negative number in an inequality, flip the direction of the $<$ or $>$ sign.

We get $x \textcolor{b l u e}{<} - 60$.
