    Divide -4 from both sides

    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 \( \huge x >\frac{28}{-4} \)
