**New York State Regents Exam**Question every day from now until the Regents exams begin next month. At least, that is the plan.### August 2014, Questions 30

**30.** *
Solve the inequality below to determine and state the smallest possible value for x in the solution set.
*

*3(x + 3) ≤ 5x - 3*

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.

Any questions?

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.
