Find all real numbers x such that 3x-7<5x+9 in interval notation                                                                                                        THE LESS THAN SIGN IS LESS THAN EQUAL TO

3x-7  ≤   5x+9   subtract  5x from both sides

 

-2x  - 7  ≤  9      add 7 to both sides

 

-2x  ≤  16       

Divide both sides by -2  and reverse the inequality sign [ since we are dividing an inequality by a negative  ] 

 

x ≥  -8

If it's in interval notation, wouldn't it be \([-8, \infty)\) ?
