j/4 - 8 < 4 (j - 32)/ 4 <4 j - 32 < 16 j < 16 + 32 j < 48

$\frac{j}{4}-8<4$$\frac{j}{4}<12$$j<48$

Why did you multiply the 4 from the left side to the 12?

4. richyw

to isolate j

5. anonymous

well you don't want to divide because its already in a division problem so you ahve to multiply to isolate j
