Worksheet Overview

This activity is about solving two inequalities.



Solve the inequalities:

x ≥ -12 and 2x + 6 ≤ -6



To solve 2x + 6 ≤ -6


First of all, we subtract 6 from both sides to get:

2x ≤ -12


Then we divide both sides by 2 to get:

x ≤ -6


The other inequality x ≥ -12 is the same as saying -12 ≤ x


Putting the two solutions together we get:


-12 ≤ x ≤ -6


Let's have a go at some questions now.
