# How do you solve (x-2)/2 <=3?

Jul 7, 2016

$x \le 8$

#### Explanation:

Solve the equation the same way as a linear equation except at any stage if you multiply by a negative change the sign around. So..

$\frac{x - 2}{2} \le 3$

Multiply both sides by 2, since we are multiplying by a positive leave the sign:

$x - 2 \le 6$

Then add 2 to both sides:

$x \le 8$
