    I think you messed up because of signs. You should be adding 1 to both sides not subtracting it @Ashtaroth

    I add 3 to both side of the inequality 4b-3+3>-1+3 and -3+3 is the same as 3-3 which=0 so 4b remains we get 4b>-1+3 ..note (-1+3) can also be written as 3-1 which equal 2 we then divide both sides by 4 to slove for b we get 4b/4>2/4.... b>1/2
