To solve for the variable indicated in the question, we have to isolate the variable term in one side. For that, we will use inverse operations.
To get rid of the fraction, we have to multiply it by the multiplicative inverse.
Problem 1 :
(-3/4)m - (1/8) ≤ (-1/4)
Solution :
(-3/4)m + (-1/8) ≤ (-1/4)
Add 1/8 to both sides.
(-3/4)m + (-1/8) + 1/8 ≤ (-1/4) + 1/8
(-3/4)m ≤ (-1/8)
Since we multiply both sides by (-4/3), change inequality ≥ into ≤
(-3/4m) (-4/3) ≤ (-1/8) (-4/3)
m ≥ 1/6
Problem 2 :
(7/13)x - 1 > 1/2
Solution :
Add 1 to both sides
(7/13)x - 1 + 1 > (1/2) + 1
(7/13)x > 3/2
Multiply both sides by 13/7
(7/13)x (13/7) > (3/2) (13/7)
x > 39/14
Converting improper fraction into mixed fraction, we get
x > 2 11/14
Problem 3 :
(4/5) ≥ (2/3) - (2/7x)
Solution :
(4/5) ≥ (-2/7x) + (2/3)
Subtract 2/3 from both sides.
(4/5) - 2/3 ≥ (-2/7x) + 2/3 - 2/3
2/15 ≥ (-2/7)x
Since we multiply both sides by (-7/2), change inequality ≥ into ≤
(2/15) (-7/2) ≥ (-2/7)x (-7/2)
-7/15 ≤ x
Problem 4 :
(8/15x) – (17/30) < 7/10
Solution :
Add 17/30 to both sides
(8/15x) – (17/30) + 17/30 < (7/10) + 17/30
8/15x < 38/30
Multiply both sides by 15/8
(8/15)x (15/8) < (38/30) (15/8)
x < 19/8
Problem 5 :
(-4/11)z - 1 > (-8/11)
Solution :
Add 1 to both sides
(-4/11)z – 1 + 1 > (-8/11) + 1
(-4/11)z > 3/11
Since we multiply both sides by (-11/4), change inequality > into <
(-4/11)z (-11/4) > (3/11) (-11/4)
z < -3/4
Problem 6 :
(1/5k) + 14 ≤ 2/9
Solution :
Subtract 14 from both sides
(1/5k) + 14 – 14 ≤ 2/9 – 14
1/5k ≤ -124/9
Multiply both sides by 5
(1/5)k (5) ≤ (-124/9) (5)
k ≤ -620/9
Converting improper fraction into mixed fraction, we get
k ≤ -68 8/9
Problem 7 :
-31/4 < -13 + (7/8f)
Solution :
-31/4 < -13 + (7/8f)
Add 13 to both sides
-31/4 +13 < -13 + 13 + (7/8)f
21/4 < 7/8f
Multiply both sides by 8/7
(21/4) (8/7) < (7/8f) (8/7)
6 < f
Problem 8 :
(1/7r) + (53/56) > 6/7
Solution :
Subtract 53/56 from both sides
(1/7)r + (53/56) – (53/56) > (6/7) – (53/56)
1/7r > -5/56
Multiply both sides by 7
(1/7)r (7) > (-5/56) (7)
r > -5/8
Problem 9 :
(5/6n) – (1/5) < -8/15
Solution :
Add 1/5 to both sides
(5/6)n – (1/5) + (1/5) < (-8/15) + (1/5)
5/6n < -5/15
Multiply both sides by 6/5
(5/6n) (6/5) < (-5/15) (6/5)
n < -2/5
Problem 10 :
(1/3) + (1/13d) ≥ 17/39
Solution :
Subtract 1/3 from both sides
(1/3) - (1/3) + (1/13)d ≥ (17/39) - (1/3)
1/13d ≥ 14/39
Multiply both sides by 13
(1/13d) (13) ≥ (14/39) (13)
d ≥ 14/13
d ≥ 1 1/13
