# Writing and solving 2 step inequalities with fractions

She especially enjoys utilizing her more than 10 years of craft and sewing experience to write tutorials. Let's solve this example together. If we estimate the point, then another person might misread the statement. We divide by the coefficient of x, which in this case is ab. At this point we note that since we are solving for c, we want to obtain c on one side and all other terms on the other side of the equation.

When we multiply or divide by a negative number, the direction of the inequality changes. First Eliminate fractions by multiplying all terms by the least common denominator of all fractions. In simpler words this definition states that a is less than b if we must add something to a to get b.

Now add - x to both sides by the addition rule. Notice how two separate steps are involved in solving this equation. Given any two real numbers a and b, it is always possible to state that Many times we are only interested in whether or not two numbers are equal, but there are situations where we also wish to represent the relative size of numbers that are not equal. So we're going to get, if we divide the numerator and the denominator by 3, we get negative 9 over 4 is less than-- these cancel out-- y. So 27 divided by negative 12, well, they're both divisible by 3. And then we can distribute this 3.
