Original inequality:

3x + 9 ≤ 6

Subtract 9 from both sides.

(Addition or subtraction does NOT affect the inequality symbol)

3x ≤ 6 - 9

3x ≤ -3

Divide both sides by 3.

(When you are multiplying or dividing by a *positive* number, the inequality symbol does NOT change; that's only if multiplying or dividing by a negative number.)

x ≤ -3/3

x ≤ -1
