Example 1Solve InequalitiesSolve 6x < 30. Graph the solution set on a number line.6x 60. Graph the solution set on a number line.Multiply or Divide by a Negative NumberAnswer:
Example 4 CYPSolve 8n 72. Graph the solution set on a number line.
Example 5BOOKS Jesse is filling a box with books that weigh 2 pounds each. The box can hold at most 15 pounds of books. Assuming that space is not an issue, write and solve an inequality to find how many books Jesse can put in the box.The phrase at most means less than or equal to. Let p = the number of books in the box.
Example 5Answer:The solution is p 7.5. He can put at most 7 books in the box.
