We rewrite the inequality so that it matches the left side of the "then" part.
a)By adding 8 to each side, we have: x+8>5+8
x+8>13
So, insert>.
b)Multiply both sides by -5. Recall that when we multyply of divide both sides of an inequality by a negative number, we change the direction of the inequality: -5x<-15
Add 18 to both sides: -5x+18<3
So, insert <.

Let's say that I have two ordered sets of numbers { 1 , 2 } and { 3 , 4 }. I'm trying to figure out the number of possible ways to combine these two sets into one without breaking the ordering of the two sets.
So for instance, { 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 }, { 3 , 4 , 1 , 2 }, and { 1 , 3 , 2 , 4 } are valid combinations, but { 2 , 1 , 4 , 3 } isn't. How do I figure out the number of valid combinations? This feels like something I should remember from college, but I'm drawing a blank. It feels somewhere in between a combination and a permutation.
