Subject: If 6 < (4 - x)/5, which of the following must be true?

Bunuel wrote:
If $$6 < \frac{4 - x}{5}$$, which of the following must be true?

 This question was provided by Crack Verbal for the Game of Timers Competition

In this question, it is unclear whether 5 is a denominator for only 4, or x-4, or 6?

It appears that it is a denominator for the entire inequality (both sides at the same time)... which cannot true. Could you please clarify? Thanks

Or is something wrong on my side?

EDIT: IT is now Fixed!

I am still not clear if Moderators earned points count towards group points. Can someone enlighten me here please

mira93, we appreciate your concern, but it is worth pointing out that the Wildlings have 5 mods, a b-school mod, and 2 experts. The 5 mods cannot participate and the other 3 might not be able to as well. On the other hand, Dothrakis have only 3 mods, meaning they have at least two more active players, if not more. Please do not overthink this process, as we have tried to make it as fair as possible (though the Wildlings really did get screwed having almost every mod on their team)

mira93 as nightblade354 mentioned a lot of research and meticulous attention to detail has gone into making of this project.

For Wildlings all the members that you see in RED and GREEN aren't contributing GOT points towards their teams. Hope this helps.

Moderators can’t earn GOT points. Therefore they can’t contribute any GOT points.

how about increasing the number of daily questions to 6, since there are no questions on on sat and sun?

could someone list the moderators which are actually the part of the GoT contest ; i mean who are posting 4-5 questions on daily basis , I dont think I am following any of the moderators except Bunuel and SajjadAhmad .. can someone please list the moderators names ..
bb ; it would have been great if you could have tagged or mentioned the name moderators on the contest main page , as it would have helped in knowing whom to follow for GoT contest.. likewise I am only following and posting under Bunuel actively only..

And where is the fun and challenge in that?
P.S. I would think a person with 4,000 posts would be able to handle figuring out who posts the questions....

bb ; I like most of the users am here to learn and honestly the fun and challenge according to me would have been learning ways and approaches to solve a question rather than being on a top position .. i guess the main theme of the contest is "You and Your Team" so its a team not an individual contest , from the given teams position its very clear that one particular team is posting more than the other , i guess the contest would have been more fair had there been a list of "CR/SC/RC/PS/DS" given of the moderators who all would be posting daily 4-5 new questions, as there are many users on this forum who are new and are not aware of all the moderators who are part of this contest, without that its more of a treasure hunt game of finding >>following and posting.
Had the moderators names were given I think the outcome of the contest would have had been different as then at least the top 10 users of each team would have competed and given the best solution for each moderators topic .. anyways its just my opinion and i thought its better to speak out than be a silent observer...

hooo today our time of posting is clashing with Federar vs nadal match.

i think, that match wins hands down today. that is historic.

Ps : if any team loses much points due to timer within 1st hour, then gmatclub is not responsible. Sorry dothrakis. today dont blame me.. blame the wimbledon.
