Solve and Graph the Solution Set on a Number Line: "2x"/5 + 1 < -3; "X" ∈ "R" - Mathematics

Sum

Solve and graph the solution set on a number line: "2x"/5 + 1 < -3; "x" ∈ "R"

Solution

"2x"/5 + 1 < -3

⇒ "2x"/5 + 1 - 1 < - 3 - 1  (Subtracting 1 from both sides)

⇒ "2x"/5 < -4

⇒ "2x"/5 xx 5 < - 4 xx 5  ...(Multiplying both sides by 5)

⇒ 2x < - 20

⇒ "2x"/2 < (-20)/2  ...(Dividing both sides by 2)

⇒ x < -10

∴ The required graph is:
