Solve the inequality below to determine and state the smallest possible value for x in the solution set.
Use the Distributive Property to get rid of the parentheses, then solve it like an equation with variables on both sides:
9 ≤ 2x - 3
12 ≤ 2x
6 ≤ x
Therefore, x > 6
The smallest possible value is 6.
If anyone in Brooklyn is looking for an Algebra or Geometry Regents Prep tutor, send me a note. I have a couple of weekly spots available between now and June.
