Can someone please help me with this inequality problem
I have no idea how to solve this problem but I would like to learn. Can you be kind to show me the steps so that I can use this as an example problem for other problems. Thanks!
for the first few lines treat the > sign as if it were an = sign
-11 > 4x + 8 - 8
-4x > 11
Now when we multiply or divide by a negative, the inequality sign has to be reversed
so divide both sides by -4
x < -11/4
