# Six times a number is at least -24, how do you write the expression?

Nov 10, 2016

$6 n \ge - 24$

#### Explanation:

First let's provide a variable for "a number" and call it $n$.

So "six times a number" could be written as $6 \cdot n$

"Is at least" in mathematical terms means "greater than or equal to" or $\ge$

Putting this altogether gives the expression:

$6 n \ge - 24$
