x=-3 and x=-5
Work Step by Step
A spreadsheet shows values for x and the result when they are substituted in the expressions. a) No, the spreadsheet doesn't show any values for x where the two expressions are equal. b) Between the values of -5 and -3 for x is where the results change from negative to positive. c) The value of 7(x + 2) is less than the value of 3(x-1) at x = -3 and x = -5.
