# How do you solve  1.5-0.25x>0.5+3.5?

Mar 16, 2018

$x < - 10$
Refer to the explanation.

#### Explanation:

$1.5 - 0.25 x > 0.5 + 3.5$
$1.5 - 0.25 x - 1.5 > 4 - 1.5$
(Subtracting 1.5 from both sides)
$- 0.25 x > 2.5$
$\frac{- 0.25 x}{-} 0.25 < \frac{2.5}{-} 0.25$
(Dividing by -0.25 on both sides reverses the inequality)
$\therefore x < - 10$

Hope this helps :)
