-4x + 1 >= 7

Solve this as you would if there was just an "=" sign. But, anytime you multiply or divide both sides by a negative number the inequality sign will reverse.

To get you started...

Subtract 1 from both sides.

is the answer x <=3/2

Close...

You have the inequality correct, but when you divided both sides by -4, you you have an error on the right side.

6/(-4) = ?
