-2 ( s - 7) > 4s + 8

-2s + 14 > 4s + 8

6 > 6s

1 > s

Or we can read this as

s < 1

(-inf, 1 )

Thanks, that actually makes sense I wasnt thinking about it the right way 🤦

But what I mean is find all the possible numbers that could equal s, rereading the question may help.

All the possible numbers are those from - infinity up to, bur not including 1

We obviously cannot list every value

Oh crap,no I mean all the possible numbers that could equal s that: - 2(s - 7) > 4s + 8 is true

You see what I meant?
