x > 11
11 is not greater than 11 !
I have a inequality
3 - x / 2 > 7
I am to get x on the left on its own, however I am not asked to see if the LHS would then be greater than 7?
My method;
First get rid of the denominator 2
3 - x > 2 x 7
Then move 3 to the RHS
x > 14 - 3
x > 11
Now if I put 11 in the inequality the answer is - 2.5
so the result; - 2.5 > 7 is wrong?
Is my method wrong or am I just to show how to get X on it's own?
Thanks
