2x-3 > -11  

2x > -8

x > -4          if x is greater than -4     then x can be    -3   -2   -1   0    1.......   etc

 

What is the sum of the negative inegers in the solution?    cheeky

Because if x can only be -3,-2,-1 and more other non-negative numbers, just sum up 3,2,1 and make it neg, right?
