Just like with equations, we need to get the variable out of the denominator. We start by multiplying each side by (x-1). | | | *multiply each side by (2x - 1)* | | *the (2x - 1)'s on the left cancel* | | *distribute the -2* | | *subtract 2 from each side* | | *simplify* | | *divide each side by -4* | | *switch the sign from ≥ to ≤* |
Since we divided each side by *negative* 4, we switched the sign from ≥ to ≤. | |
