    Solve.

    Is your problem \frac{5}{18}-\frac{x-9}{9}\le \frac{x-4}{6}~?

    If not, then you have only yourself to blame.

    Please learn to post what you really mean!

    When you say Solve, is that a command? Are we your servants?

    Think of the inequality sign like an equals sign but if you multiply both sides by a negative number then change the direction of the sign.
    The first step is to multiply each term by 18
