Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

First, subtract #color(red)(4)# from each side of the inequality to isolate the #b# term while keeping the inequality balanced:

#4 -color(red)(4) + 5b > 34 - color(red)(4)#

#0 + 5b > 30#

#5b > 30#

Now, divide each side of the inequality by #color(red)(5)# to solve for #b# while keeping the inequality balanced:

#(5b)/color(red)(5) > 30/color(red)(5)#

#(color(red)(cancel(color(black)(5)))b)/cancel(color(red)(5)) > 6#

#b > 6#
