12-18x-4-8x<=016-26x<=0
It should be

12 - 18x - 4 + 8x <= 0

We can simplify that down to:

(12-4) + (-18x + 8x) <= 0

(12-4) - 10x <= 0

What is 12-4?

I agree with 12 - 18x - 4 - 8x <= 0We can simplify that down to: (12-4) + (-18x - 8x) <= 0(12-4) - 26x <= 0What is 12-4?
• 12-4= 8?
• so 8-26x<=0
• 8-26x<=-8
• /26x
• x>=13/4

I agree with

12 - 18x - 4 - 8x <= 0
I don't. It should be 12 - 18x - 4 + 8x ≤ 0

Urgh, sorry - I made a mistake, see above.

Yep, sorry. Thanks for pointing it out.
