    Set builder notation to describe the complete solution

    Please help me use set builder notation to describe the complete solution of this:

    39 - (3x+7) less than or equal to (x + 4) + x

    equals x|x ?

    Okay so what have you tried?

    Can you solve

    39-(3x+7) \le (x+4)+x

    for x?

    x is greater than or equal to 4. Is that right?

    No I am sorry that is incorrect, but I don't know what error you made because you didn't show any work.
