This is not an inequality. There is no <,>, or = sign.

p is less than 12.

P<12

It is an inequality that defines a range of values of p for which it is correct.

p>9

3p - 16 < 20Add 16 to each side:3p < 36Divide each side by 3:p < 12

3p - 6 > 21 3p - 6+6 > 21+6 3p > 27 3p/3 > 27/3 p>9 this WILL help

p is equal to any number greater than 12. 3p - 16 > 20 3p > 20 + 16 3p > 36 p > 12

There appears to be no inequality in the question: only some disjoint expressions. Expressions cannot be solved.

1. Write out your expression. You can treat inequalities like equalities when solving. This means if < or > make you uncomfortable, pretend it's an = and solve it algebraically:3p - 6 > 212. Add 6 to both sides.3p > 273. Divide by 3 on both sides.p > 94. P is greater than 9.

add 16 to each side so 3p < 36 then divide both sides by 3 so p < 12
