    Multiply it all out first: 3(t - 2) > 4( 2t +11) 3t-6 > 8t +44 Now you need to combine like terms: 3t - 6 > 8t + 44 +6 +6 ---------------- 3t > 8t +50 -8t -8t ----------- -5t > 50 -------- -5 t < -10 (The sign was flipped because every time you multiply or divide by a negative, it flips)

    First, use the distributive property on both sides to get rid of parentheses.
