Given inequality is

-6/25x ≥ -5/3

Apply multiplication property, multiply 25x toeach side.

(-6/25X)25x ≥ (-5/3)25x

-6 >= -125x/3

Apply multiplication property, multiple by 3 to each side.

(-6)(3) ≥  (-125x/3)(3)

-18 ≥ -125x 

 -18/-125 ≥ x multiply with negative one and do not forget to change the inequality symbol

x ≥ 18/125

Set builder notation  {x belongs to R / x 18/125}
