Are you smarter than an 8th grader?

Okay, I'm helping my daughter with her math home work and I'm rocking the scatter plots and x and y intercepts and slope questions, then comes along inequalities. No problem, I can handle inequalities, after all, I did this stuff 30 years ago. I run across this problem and for the LIFE of me, can't remember what to do:

S >W - 56
.........- 7

and S > 6

the ........ is just to line up the denominator

Solver gets a cold 1554 (new belgium brewing company) -- I'll email it to ya.

I know the answer, just can't figure out how.

ok I think I may have figured it out

s>(w-56)/-7

-7s<(w-56)

w>(56-7s)

since the minimum value of 7s is 7(6), 42 you would think it was w>14 but s could be greater than 6 which would mean that w could be less than 14. hmmm what type of answer am I looking for?

Ding ding ding!!! Tell him what he's won Jack! You're right, 14 is the answer - thank you for your logic - it is quite impressive. I didn't think to use the 6 as a minimum input for the variable "S".
