Hello there! Our goal is to isolate the variable on one side of the inequality, and then solve for it. 1.) 5x + 3 [latex] leq [/latex] -17 Subtract 3 from both sides to isolate the variable. 5x [latex] leq [/latex] -20 Divide 5 from both sides to solve for the variable. x [latex] leq [/latex] -4 is your first inequality solution for the first inequality. 2.) 14x + 20 [latex] leq [/latex] 13 Subtract 20 from both sides to isolate the variable. 14x [latex] leq [/latex] -7 Divide both sides by 14 to solve for the variable. x [latex] leq [/latex] [latex] frac{1}{2} [/latex] is your solution for the second inequality. I hope this helps!
