+(t-4) > t-4

0>0 , no solution

or

-(t-4) > t-4

-t+4 >t-4

-2t > -8

t < 4

check with some numbers

t = 1 , which is less than 4

|1-4| > 1-4

3 > -3 , YUP

t = -50 , which is less than 4

|-50-4| > -50 - 4

54 > -54 , YUP

let t = 6 , which is greater than 4

|6-4| > 6-4

2 > 2 , no, as it should be

looks like t > 4 is my solution
