Q:
# The table shows the steps for solving the given inequality for x.7x+16<-5(4-5x)Select the reason for each step from the drop down menus. 7x+16<-5(4-5) - Given 7x+16<-20+25x - Distributive Property 16<-20+18x - ? 36< 18x - ? 2< x - ?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Step-by-step explanation:We have to solve the inequality for x.Solution is given below.7x +16 < -5(4 - 5x)....given
7x + 16 < -20 + 25x....distributive property
16 < -20 + 18x ... subtraction property
16 + 20 < 18x.....addition property
36 < 18x
36/18 < x.....division property
2 < x
