    the question is: how much could EACH tree cost? meaning you will have to divide 4t by 4 and also 84 by 4 this gives you: \[\frac{ 4t }{ 4 } \ge \frac{ 84 }{ 4 }\]

    NOT EQUAL. we are using inequality greater than or equal to, because in the original problem it says: spent no less than 84 dollars...
