## anonymous one year ago What is the solution for this inequality? -4x < 28

1. anonymous

Divide -4 from both sides

2. LynFran

divide by -4 to both sides of the inequality and change the sign to >

$$\huge \frac{-4x}{-4} = \frac{28}{-4}$$ $$\huge x = \frac{28}{-4}$$ What does x equal?

Once you have solved for x $$\huge x = \frac{28}{-4}$$ add your sign < back in $$\huge x <\frac{28}{-4}$$ and since you divided by a - negative number you need to flip the sign the other way $$\huge x > \frac{28}{-4}$$ So x is greater than $$\huge x >\frac{28}{-4}$$
