# How do you solve -4 (-4+x)>56?

Mar 27, 2018

$x < - 10$

#### Explanation:

Distribute the $- 4$. So you get

$16 - 4 x > 56$

Subtract $16$ from both sides so you get

$- 4 x > 40$

Divide by $- 4$ on both sides and flip the $>$ sign because you are dividing by a negative. You will get

$x < - 10$
