$x\leq 7$ Please see image

Work Step by Step

$ 5-8x\leq 19-10x\qquad$ ...add $10x$ to each side of the inequality. $ 5-8x+10x\leq 19-10x+10x\qquad$ ...simplify. $ 5+2x\leq 19\qquad$ ...add $-5$ to each side of the inequality. $ 5+2x-5\leq 19-5\qquad$ ...simplify. $ 2x\leq 14\qquad$ ...divide with $2$. $x\leq 7$ The solutions of the given inequality are all real numbers less or equal to $7$. Smaller numbers are to the left of $7$. Use a solid dot in the graph to indicate $7$ is a solution.
