2x - 6 = 10 x = 8
6 less than x-6 is x-12, and that equals 8 if x is 20 and is less than 8 if x is less than 20.
x = 11
One less than twice a number = (X times 2) minus 1, (where X = your number of choice).
If this is an inequality (6 is less than x, or 6 ---The variable statement "6 less than x" is (x - 6)This is a value (variable and constant) where the value of x is determined by an equationsuch as x-6 = 4 (x is positive 2) or y = x-6 (y is 6 less than x).
It depends upon whether the inequality is strictly less than (<), or if it is less than or could be equal (≤). For example: if x < 6, x can have any value less than 6, but cannot have the value 6; but if x ≤ 6, x can have any value less than 6, but can also have the value 6. Or put another way, x = 6 is NOT a solution of x < 6, but IS a solution to x ≤ 6.
It works out as: y = x-6
This forms an equation which solves nicely: 2x-7 = x-1 x-7 = -1 x = 6
you r asking a number whose twice will be 4 but less than 8. so, take a no. x. by ques. 2x=4; 2x=4; x=4/2; hence x=2; 2 is answer and less than 8 of twice it.
Three less than twice x is 2x-3.Two more than the quantity 3 times x is 3x + 2.The product of these is (2x-3)(3x+2), which can also be written as:(6x2 - 5x - 6)
The equation can be simplified as 4+2x=x-6. Moving similar entities to similar sides, the equation becomes 2x-x=-6-4. We then get x=-10.
The question is: What is x if 1 is less than 2x?Solution method:1. Reduce the equation to a value for x. i.e. divide everything by 2So 0.5 is less than 1x (0.5 2. Reverse the equation and change the signsAnswer: x is greater 0.5 (x > 0.5)i.e. If x is greater than 0.5, then 1 is less than twice x.
5x + 18 = 2x - 6 x = -8
2x + 4 < x x < -4
This question appears to have three different boundries. They translate as follows: The opposite of Y is at most 6 = -Y ≤ 6 = Y ≥ -6 Y is less than twice X = Y < 2X Two thirds of X increased by Y is less than 2 = (2X/3) + Y < 2 = Y < (-2X/3) + 2 By now, these should all be simple to graph. The intersection of these boundaries will form a shaded triangle with its base a horizontal line that crosses the y axis at -6.
Let the number be x Twice a number means 2x 7 less than twice a number means 2x-7
it will be an infinite region bounded by the lines x=2 and x=6
That expression is x-6.
x - 6 = 17
