Comment: We can consider the expression on the left hand side of the inequality as a function of $x$ giving $ f(x) = 5x - 10$ . Now the problem can be restated: to find a $x$ where $f(x) \le 20$.

This problem and its solution can be visualized both on the graph and the mapping diagram using the focus point.

For the graph of $f$: Find
$y\le20$ on the Y axis , then find the point on the graph of
$f$ with second coordinate $20$, determine it's first
coordinate, $6$, and that is the desired value for the solution that $x\le 6$. |
For the mapping diagram of $f$:
Find $y=20$ on the target axis , then find $x$ on the source
axis with the function arrow pointing to $20$ and that is the desired value for the solution that $x\le 6$. |

To do this, look for the point where the line $y=20$ intersects the line that is the graph of $f$, namely $(6,20)$ giving the solution for $f(x) \le 20$ , that is $x\le 6$ or $x\in (-\infty,6]$. | To do this, find the focus point of
$f$, $F= [5, -10]$ on the mapping diagram. Draw the line through F and the point $y=20$, to find the
point of intersection of this line with the X axis, $x=6$,
which is the desired value for $x$, giving the solution for $f(x) \le 20$ , that is $x\le 6$ or $x\in (-\infty,6]$. |

Recognize that $f$ is a composition, $f(x)= s(m(x))$ where $m(x)=5x$ and $s(x)=x-10$.

The solution can be visualized more clearly connected to the algebra for solving the inequality with the mapping diagram for the function $f$ as a composition.

On the mapping diagram, from the point $y=20$ on the target line, find the point on the middle axis, $u$, where $s(u)=20$. Visually this gives an arrow from the target axis to the middle axis that undoes the function $s$, which visualizes the inverse function for $s$, namely $u=s^{-1}(y)=y+10=20+10=30$.

Now we have that $u\le 30$ if and only if $s(u)\le 20$

Visually this gives an arrow from the middle axis to the source axis that undoes the function $m$, which visualizes the inverse function for $m$, namely $x=m^{-1}(u)=\frac15 u= \frac15 30=6$.

giving the solution for $f(x) \le 20$ , that is $x\le 6$ or $x\in (-\infty,6]$.
