Hi Tracey;

5x>15

I do not know if you know the difference between < and >. In the sixth grade, the way we remembered this is, *The alligator is going to eat the bigger one*.

We are going to proceed as if > is =.

5x>15

Let's divide both sides by 5...

(5x)/5>15/5

x>3

x is greater than 3.

The *alligator *will eat anything greater than 3.

Thats what i thought to.. but i wanted to make sure thank you
