**Reiny**, Saturday, November 23, 2013 at 8:51amHere 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.

**mark**, Saturday, November 23, 2013 at 9:19amthats what he had for an answer but he thinks a reasonable answer is w= -3 why though? and why is it incorrect?

**Reiny**, Saturday, November 23, 2013 at 9:37amw = -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.

check:

if w = -3

LS = |4 - 3(-3)|

= |4+9|

= 13

Is 13 > 8 ??? YES, so w = -3 is one of the infinite number of solutions.
