*1/3 of a number*

"a number" is our variable, the number we'll solve for, let's call it n

So, we get ...

**1/3 n**

The above is *"no less than six"*

this means it is at least six,in other words greater than or equal to 6, so we get

**≥ 6**

**Write the inequality and solve>**

**1/3 n ≥ 6 ** (to isolate n, multiply both sides by 3)

n **≥ 18**

**There is your solution. The above statement is true for all variables n ≥ 18.**

Check:

1/3 of 18 = 6

1/3 of 21 = 7
