How does one go about solving these fractional problems?
5/6 < n/7 n=
1/2 > n/10 n=
Am I too old for this? Any help would be appreciated!
Use the exact same methods you used for solving linear equations. For instance:How does one go about solving these fractional problems?
5/6 < n/7
1/2 > n/10
linear analog: 5/6 = n/7 (5/6)(7/1) = (n/7)(7/1) (5*7)/(6*1) = n 35/6 = nNow do the same thing for the inequalities, remembering to keep the inequality signs pointing the right way. (In your case, they'll stay pointing the way they are, since you aren't multiplying or dividing through by negatives during your solution process.)
