Here would be the correct solution ...
4-3w > 8 OR -4 + 3w > 8
-3w > 4 OR 3w > 12
w < -4/3 OR w > 4
You didn't state what Paul had said.
thats what he had for an answer but he thinks a reasonable answer is w= -3 why though? and why is it incorrect?
w = -3 is a "reasonable" answer because it satisfies the original inequation, and it falls within the domain of my solution.
There are an infinite number of reasonable answers.
if w = -3
LS = |4 - 3(-3)|
Is 13 > 8 ??? YES, so w = -3 is one of the infinite number of solutions.
