How do you solve \frac { b } { 8} \leq \frac { 3} { 4}?

$b \le 6$

Explanation:

For an inequality like this, you cross multiply. It's no different than if the $\le$ was a $=$ except when you divide an inequality by a negative number.
$\frac{b}{8} \le \frac{3}{4}$

$4 \cdot b = 8 \cdot 3$
$4 b \le 24$
$b \le 6$
