What is the greatest integer that does NOT satisfy \(3(x – 9) < 5x – 2(1 – 3x)\) ?

A. –4
B. –3
C. 0
D. 3
E. 4


Simplifying given inequality, we have \(3(x – 9) < 5x – 2(1 – 3x)\)
Or, 8x+25>0
Or, x>-3.125

So, the greatest integer that doesn't satisfy the given in equality is -4.

Ans. (A)

Hi,

On simplification I am getting \(x > -3.125\) which makes my answer A
