An example would be 4<a+1 over 2

Hi Gage;

If I understand correctly, we are solving for a.

If I understand correctly, this is the equation...

4<(a+1)/2

You are going to proceed as if < is an = sign. The only exception would be if we decided to multiply or divide both sides by a

**negative**number. Then, the less than sign reverses and becomes greater than.Let's proceed to isolate a by multiplying both sides by 2...

(2)4<[(a+1)/2](2)

8<a+1

Let's subtract 1 from both sides...

-1+8<a+1-1

7<a
