Step 1
Now that we know what our inequality is, we can now solve for x. To do this, we have to subtract 24 from each side:
9 x + 15 - 24 24 + 10 x - 24
9 x - 9 10 x
Next, let's subtract 9x from each side:
9 x - 9 - 9 x 10 x - 9 x
- 9 9 x
Finally, let's divide each side by 9 to get our answer:
- 9 9 9 x 9
- 1 x
