An example would be 4<a+1 over 2
If I understand correctly, we are solving for a.
If I understand correctly, this is the equation...
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...
Let's subtract 1 from both sides...
