Q:
# use a inequality symbol to compare -3x+7 -10-2

Accepted Solution

A:

Hey there,

Let's remember that a (inequality symbol) is things like (<), (>), (≤),(≥), (≠).

So, I believe that (-3x+7) and (-10-2) are separate. So we will find that out :)

Let's first do (-3x+7). As simplifying this expression here, we take that "x" of for a while and just stick to (-3+7).

-3

+ 7

______

4

Let's bring that "x" back, and the answer would be 4x for a while.

So far, 4x is the answer.

Now, Let's work on the other side.

We are talking about (-10-2)

-10

- 2

_______

-12

So, by solving the answer to (-10-2), we got -12.

So, let's determine what is greater . . . . .

[tex]What \ is \ greater?[/tex]

-12 or 4.

-12 is on the negative side, and the number 4 is positive. This would conclude that 4 is great than -12.

Your correct answer would look like . . .

(-3x+7) > (-10-2)

I really hope this helps you alot.
