Please provide an eplanation for this question. I'm confused.

$$7x=14+2x$$

$$5x=14$$

$$x=2.8$$

Q: Is x=2.8?

1.
$$-3x\ge-9$$
$$-x\ge-3$$
$$x\le3$$

Means;
x is either 3 or less than 3.
x can be 3,2.9,2.8,0,-90
x may or may not be equal to 2.8
Not Sufficient.

2.
$$2x\ge6$$
$$x\ge3$$

Means;
x can never be equal to 2.8 because it is either equal to 3 or more than 3.
Sufficient.

Ans: "B"

P.S.: By the way, if I consider both statements and both statements must provide true information. x=3
