4 < 4a +3 < 18

**Steve**, Thursday, April 12, 2012 at 4:43ama compound inequality is just two inequalities. Solve each one.

4 < 4a+3

1 < 4a

1/4 < a

4a+3 < 18

4a < 15

a < 15/4

so, the solution is

1/4 < a < 15/4

or, you can indeed solve it as a combination, if it's relatively simple, as this one is.

4 < 4a+3 < 18

subtract 3 all across

1 < 4a < 15

divide by 4

1/4 < a < 15/4
