# Solve this inequality: j/4 – 8 ‹ 4.?

Solve this inequality: j/4 - 8 ‹ 4.

A. j › -12

B. j ‹ 12

C. j ‹ -48

D. j ‹ 48

wtf?

• add 8 to both sides, then multiply both sides by 4.

j<48

• j/4 - 8 < 4

first bring the 8 over to the right hand side

j/4 < 4+8

j/4 < 12

multiply both sides by 4

j < 12*4

j < 48

• an inequality is like a normal equation but the answer has a range rather than one specific answer. So you need to get J by itself. Add 8 to 4=12 so j/4=12........ now divide multiply 12 by 4. j<48

• J= any number from 47 or less...anything over 47 is wrong answer. For example:

J/4-8<4

J= 48 then take 48 divided by 4 and subtract 8 that would equals to 4 which is not less than 4 so its wrong answer. but if u substitute J with lesser # than 48 you will come up with the right answer. Do you follow me?

• an inequality is type of a classic equation notwithstanding the answer has a form truly than one certain answer. so that you want to get J by using itself. upload 8 to 4=12 so j/4=12........ now divide multiply 12 by using 4. j<40 8

• Here is how,

J / 4 - 8 < 4 Treat "< " like " = " (equal sign)

Therefore,

J / 4 < 4 + 8

J / 4 < 12

J < 12 x 4

J < 48

• D

8+4=12

j/4<12

times each side by 4

j<48
