Solve the inequality \(-4(x+4)>x+7\). Give your answer as an interval.

Hint: The answer is ** not** x<(-23)/5

#1**+2 **

\(-4(x+4)>x+7\)

\(-4x-16>x+7\)

\(-23>5x\)

\(x<\frac{-23}{5}\)

Why wouldn't it be x<-23/5?

Maybe it might prefer

\((-∞, -\frac{23}{5})\)

As an interval?

#3**+2 **

That's extremely strange

Are you sure you have the question correct?

(Maybe missing a minus sign or or something)

I just check with a math calculator and x<-23/5 is correct :\
