Solve the inequality. I'm stuck and want to learn how to get the answer. I've tried many ways but keep getting irrelevant answers.

    when you subtracted, you had \(-4t>-44\) you want to get t by itself so divide -44/-4

    second of all, when you divide by a negative or multiply by a negative, the sign flips so \(t≤11\)
