# How do you solve 1/4m<=-17?

Jun 27, 2017

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Multiply each side of the inequality by $\textcolor{red}{4}$ to solve for $m$ while keeping the inequality balanced:

$\textcolor{red}{4} \times \frac{1}{4} m \le \textcolor{red}{4} \times - 17$

$\cancel{\textcolor{red}{4}} \times \frac{1}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{4}}}} m \le - 68$

$1 m \le - 68$

$m \le - 68$
