Wenty-seven minus 3/2 of a number (x) is not more than 36. what is the number?

Answers

x>42

Explanation:

27-3/2x<36

27+36>-3/2x

63>3/2x

63÷3/2<x

x>42

The answer to your question is the letter B. x ≥ - 6

Step-by-step explanation:

-Write an inequality to help to find the answer

                          27 - 3/2 x ≤ 36            

-Solve for x

-Add -27 in both sides

                         27 - 3/2x - 27 ≤ 36 - 27

-Simplify

                                  -3/2x   ≤   9

-Multiply by 2 both sides

                                   -3(2)/2 x ≤ 9(2)

-Simplify

                                        -3x ≤ 18                

-Divide both sides by -3

                                        -3x/-3 ≥ 18/-3

-Simplify

                                            x ≥ - 6

27-1.5x<36
54-3x<72                                                                                                                54-72<3x                                                                                                               -18<3x                                                                                                                  -6<x                                                                                                                      x>6  
27 - 1.5x ≤ 36
54 - 3x ≤ 72
54 - 72 ≤3x
-18 ≤ 3x
-6 ≤ x
x ≥ -6
27+1.5x < 36
1.5x < 36-27
1.5x < 9
x < 6

Number 'x' has to be lower than 6.
27+1.5x < 36
1.5x < 36-27
1.5x < 9
x < 6

Number 'x' has to be lower than 6.
