    x ≤ 50

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Since the original inequality includes the "or equal to" case, we know that x=50 is part of the solution set. The trick is to figure out whether the solution set includes values more than 50, or less than 50.

    There are a couple of ways to check this:

    try a value of x other than 50 and see if the inequality is satisfied. It is usually convenient to use x=0. Here, that would give 100 - 0 ≥ - 50, a true statement. So, we now know that solution values are less than or equal to 50: x ≤ 50. Multiply the inequality by - 1, or add 3x, so that the coefficient of x is positive. The direction of the comparison symbol for that case will tell you the direction of the comparison symbol in the answer. Here, multiplying by - 1 gives - 100 + 3x ≤ 50, so we know x ≤ 50. If we add 3x instead, we see that 100 ≥ 3x - 50, so we know 50 ≥ x.

    x≤50

    Step-by-step explanation:

    100-3x≥-50

    subtracting 100 at both side on inequality

    -100+100-3x≥--50-100

    -3x≥-150

    Dividing both sides by 3

    -3x/3≥-150/3

    -x≥--50

    Adding 50 on both sides

    -x+50≥-50+50

    -x+50≥0

    Adding x on both sides

    -x+x+50≥0+x

    50≥x

    so,

    x≤50
