# Thread: Solve the following over the real numbers

1. ## Solve the following over the real numbers

Solve the following over the real numbers.
a) -2 = (-5x/12) + 3
b) 3x + 5 ≥ 6x – 7
c) 3x + √6 = 2x - 3√6

Solve the following over the real numbers.
a) -2 = (-5x/12) + 3
Subtract -3 from both sides, then divide both sides by -5/12

b) 3x + 5 ≥ 6x – 7
Subtract 3x from both sides, then add 7 to both sides, then divide both sides by 3

c) 3x + √6 = 2x - 3√6
Subtract 2x from both sides, then subtract $\displaystyle \sqrt{6}$ from both sides

You post them. That way you prove that you are working.

A) x=12
B) ?
c) -5.715...

b) solve $\displaystyle 12\ge 3x$
c) leave as $\displaystyle -4\sqrt{6}$
