    g-3 is being divided by 7, you need to undo this by multiplying the other side of the inequality by 7

    you want to perform the opposite operation that is being done to your target variable. g-3 is already divided by 7, so you want to perform the opposite operation (multiplication) to the other side to cancel out the division on the left, so multiply by 7
