**Q 3 - Identify the correct solution to the following one-step linear inequality**

**x + 8 > 14**

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

x + 8 > 14; x > 14 − 8; x > 6

Plugging in 5, we get 5 > 6; wrong

Plugging in 6, we get 6 > 6; wrong

Plugging in 4, we get 4 > 6; wrong

Plugging in 7, we get 7 > 6; correct

**Step 2:**

So, the correct solution is 7

**Q 4 - Identify the correct solution to the following one-step linear inequality**

**27 ≥ 9x**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

27 ≥ 9x

Plugging in 4, we get 27 ≥ 9×4; 27 ≥ 36; wrong

Plugging in 5, we get 27 ≥ 9×5; 27 ≥ 45; wrong

Plugging in 3, we get 27 ≥ 9×3; 27 ≥ 27; correct

Plugging in 6, we get 27 ≥ 9×6; 27 ≥ 54; wrong

**Step 2:**

So, the correct solution is 3

**Q 5 - Identify the correct solution to the following one-step linear inequality**

**7x ≤ 35**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

7x ≤ 35

Plugging in 8, we get 7×8 ≤ 35; 56 ≤ 35; wrong

Plugging in 5, we get 7×5 ≤ 35; 35 ≤ 35; correct

Plugging in 6, we get 7×6 ≤ 35; 42 ≤ 35; wrong

Plugging in 7, we get 7×7 ≤ 35; 49 ≤ 35; wrong

**Step 2:**

So, the correct solution is 5

**Q 6 - Identify the correct solution to the following one-step linear inequality**

**x – 2 < 9**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

x – 2 < 9; x −2 + 2 < 9 + 2; x < 11

Plugging in 13, we get 13 < 11; wrong

Plugging in 10, we get 10 < 11; correct

Plugging in 11, we get 11 < 11; wrong

Plugging in 15, we get 15 < 11; wrong

**Step 2:**

So, the correct solution is 10

**Q 7 - Identify the correct solution to the following one-step linear inequality**

**2x ≥ 13**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

2x ≥ 13

Plugging in 5, we get 2×5 ≥ 13; 10 ≥ 13; wrong

Plugging in 7, we get 2×7 ≥ 13; 14 ≥ 13; correct

Plugging in 4, we get 2×4 ≥ 13; 8 ≥ 13; wrong

Plugging in 3, we get 2×3 ≥ 13; 6 ≥ 13; wrong
