Q:
# Write “five less than the product of three times a number and four is no more than sixty-seven” as an algebraic expression. Solve and graph it.

Accepted Solution

A:

The inequality would be 3x(4)-5≤67; the solution is x≤6; the graph is attached.

To solve this, first multiply the coefficients of x:

12x-5≤67

Add 5 to both sides:

12x-5+5≤67+5

12x≤72

Divide both sides by 12:

12x/12 ≤ 72/12

x ≤ 6

To solve this, first multiply the coefficients of x:

12x-5≤67

Add 5 to both sides:

12x-5+5≤67+5

12x≤72

Divide both sides by 12:

12x/12 ≤ 72/12

x ≤ 6
