Solve this inequality 4y - 3 ≥ 5

1 - We treat an inequality sign like an equals sign (unless we divide by a negative number).

2 - Rearrange the inequality to get all the ys on one side and all the numbers on the other side.

3 - Simplify to get 1 y.

4y - 3 ≥ 5

ADD 3                 (4y - 3 + 3 ≥ 5 + 3)

4y ≥ 8

DIVIDE BY 4        (4y/4 ≥ 8/4)

y ≥ 2
