# How do you solve 4k-4-3k >13-7k-1+8?

Jul 30, 2016

$k > 3$

#### Explanation:

Treat inequalities exactly the same as an equation except if you multiply or divide by a negative number the sign changes around.

$4 k - 4 - 3 k > 13 - 7 k - 1 + 8 \text{ simplify both sides}$

$k - 4 > 20 - 7 k$

$k + 7 k > 20 + 4 \text{ variables on one side}$

$8 k > 24$

$k > 3$
