Answer:

#112 < x < 32# in conjunction with #|1/4 x+10| < y#

The #112 < x < 32# limits the domain (input).

Explanation:

This is another way of writing:

So we need the condition:

#-18<(1/4x+10)<18#

Subtract 10 from everything

#-28 < 1/4x< 8#

Multiply everything by 4

#-112 < x < 32#

Have a look at the example https://socratic.org/s/aGprwmLH
for the format of presentation #112< x <32#
