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 \(-14,-13,-12.5,0,\frac{2}{3},1.\overline{78},\pi, \sqrt{21}\)
