What is the solution of 4x +1 > or equal to 7
I get these really confused on how to solve these.
Thank you

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) = ?
