Is anyone good at algebra?  I am working on my homework and CANNOT solve this damn problem!   I finally just put it into a solver online and got the answer of x>14.  I need to show my work though and I can't figure it out because the two x's are really confusing me.  Can anyone show me how to do the work on this?

35+4x < 6.5x
35 < 2.5x

so 35/2.5 < x

YOU'RE AWESOME!!! Seriously, thank you. I think too hard about stuff and if I hadn't I probably would have realized that it was that simple. Thanks for showing me.

Oh, any time, I love maths, and I'm very good at it! What's the course you're doing?

Right now I am taking College Algebra and then I take Trig as my next class. I have cerebral palsy, which REALLY kills my mathematical skills, so it's kind of a pain. I'm trying to grasp the concept of the quadratic functions right now. :-)

Well, really, any time you have questions, I'd love to help (the email address in my profile is probably quicker than LJ, as my work has blocked LJ).

I have a degree in Maths and worked evenings tutoring high school level Maths (and English language) for a few years after my degree, so I am OK at explaining any of this type of standard mathematics which is pretty much the same all over the world. (More specific syllabus methodology I might not know).
