Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

First, subtract #color(red)(7)# from each side of the inequality to isolate the #x# term while keeping the inequality balanced:

#1/4x + 7 - color(red)(7) > 0 - color(red)(7)#

#1/4x + 0 > -7#

#1/4x > -7#

Now, multiply each side of the inequality by #color(red)(4)# to solve for #x# while keeping the inequality balanced:

#color(red)(4) xx 1/4x > color(red)(4) xx -7#

#color(red)(4)/4x > -28#

#1x > -28#

#x > -28#
