# An inequality is shown below: -np - 4 ≤ 2(c - 3). Which of the following solves for n?

n ≤ - the quantity 2 times c minus 2 all over p

n ≤ - the quantity 2 times c minus 10 all over p

n ≥ - the quantity 2 times c minus 2 all over p

n ≥ - the quantity 2 times c minus 10 all over p

**Solution:**

Given:

-np - 4 ≤ 2(c - 3)

By adding 4 on both sides

-np - 4 + 4 ≤ 2(c - 3) + 4

-np - 4 + 4 ≤ 2c - 6 + 4

-np ≤ 2c - 2

By dividing p into both sides

-np/p ≤ (2c - 2) / p

- n ≤ (2c - 2) / p

Multiplying both sides by - 1

n ≥ - (2c - 2)/p

Therefore, n ≥ - (2c - 2)/p solves for n.

## An inequality is shown below: -np - 4 ≤ 2(c - 3). Which of the following solves for n?

**Summary:**

n ≥ - the quantity 2 times c minus 2 all over p solves for n for the given inequality -np - 4 ≤ 2(c - 3).
