When you take my value and multiply it by -8, the result is an integer greater than -220. If you take the result and divide it by the sum of -10 and 2, the result is my value. I am a rational number. What is my number?
Your value is any rational number greater than
We can model these two requirements with an inequality and an equation. Let
We will first attempt to find the value of
This means that regardless of the initial value of
Now to work out the inequality:
So, the value of
