what is K over 3 is greater than or equal to -5? I don't know if it's supposed to be left in a fraction form or not (Geometry)

Solving an inequality is similar to solving a regular equation; you are isolating the variable, in this case K.

 $$\frac{K}{3}\geq-5$$ Multiply by 3 on both sides to isolate K. $$K\geq-15$$

The solutions, if you are wondering, are values for K that satisfies its current restriction (K is greater than or equal to -15). Examples of solutions are $$-14,-13,-12.5,0,\frac{2}{3},1.\overline{78},\pi, \sqrt{21}$$
