Can someone please help me with this inequality problem
38>(4x+8)8
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
38>(4x+8)8
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
