Answer:

#h> -0.6#

Explanation:

Solve: #-5.94-18.5h+16.26<-4(8.7h-2.88)+18.3h#

Simplify the left side.

#-18.5h+10.32<-4(8.7h-2.88)+18.3h#

Expand the right side using the distributive property: #a(b+c)=ab+ac#.

#-18.5h+10.32<-34.8h+11.52+18.3h#

Simplify the right side.

#-18.5h+10.32<-16.5h+11.52#

Add #16.5h# to both sides.

#-2h+10.32<11.52#

Subtract #10.32# from both sides.

#-2h<1.2#

Divide both sides by #-2#.

#h>1.2/(-2)#

Simplify.

#h> -0.6#
