See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Multiply each side of the equation by $\textcolor{red}{5}$ to solve for $g$ while keeping the equation balanced:

$\textcolor{red}{5} \times \frac{1}{5} g \ge \textcolor{red}{5} \times - 4$

$\cancel{\textcolor{red}{5}} \times \frac{1}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{5}}}} g \ge - 20$

$g \ge - 20$

$g \ge 20$

#### Explanation:

Multiply the equation by 5 to isolate $g$

$\frac{1}{5} g \cdot 5 \ge - 4 \cdot 5$

$g \ge 20$

Answer : Any value of $g$ above or equal to 20 would satisfy this equation.
