how do I break this down?

4x-7 <-4

the 4x-7 is all over 6 (like a fraction) I thought I just multiply by 6 to get rid of the fraction?

  • algebra -

    Yes, your first step is correct. It leaves you with
    4x - 7 < -24
    Then add 7 to both sides.
    Then divide both sides by 4.
    4x < -17.
    x < -17/4
