7-84.

Evaluate the inequality below for the following listed values of $x$. Decide if the value makes the statement true or false. Show your work.

$3x-3\ge2x+3$

Substitute each value in for $x$ and solve the inequality to see if it is true or false.

1. $x=−3$

$3(-3)-3\ge2(-3)+3$

$-9-3\ge-6+3$

$−12\ge-3$
False

1. $x=9.5$

1. $x=6$

1. $x=10\frac{1}{2}$

True. Be sure to know why this is the answer.
