### Example Question #1 : How To Find The Solution To An Inequality With Division

Solve for :

**Possible Answers:**

None of the other answers

**Correct answer:**

To solve for , separate the integers and 's by adding 1 and subtracting from both sides to get . Then, divide both sides by 2 to get . Since you didn't divide by a negative number, the sign does not need to be reversed.
