# How do you solve the inequality [61 + 20x] + 32 > 51?

May 2, 2018

#### Answer:

$x > - \frac{42}{20}$

#### Explanation:

First of all, treat inequality equations as normal equal sign equations.
$\left(61 + 20 x\right) + 32 > 51$
making x the subject:
$\left(61 + 32\right) - 51 - 20 x$
$93 - 51 > - 20 x$
$42 > - 20 x$
now when dividing by negative number, the sign will change from > to <.
$\frac{42}{-} 20 < x$
