    Solve inequality.

    Solve the inequality algebraically. lx-1l-lx-3l is greater than or equal to 5

    Re: Solve inequality.

    for these kinds of problems, you would
    divide this into cases where
    1. x<1, x=1
    2.1<x<3
    3. x>3, x=3
    but that problem is weird. even if you put x=1, it's smaller than 5. i think the question's messed up lol

    Well, I would not say "messed up". I would just say that the answer to the problem is "there is NO value of x that makes this inequality true."
