Answer

B

Work Step by Step

We need isolate p in the expression. Remember: In Algebra, when we divide by any negative number, we flip the inequality sign. $ -3p + 4 <22 $ We subtract 4 from both sides (the sign does not flip because we used subtraction.) $ -3p <18 $ Next we divide by -3 to isolate p; this time, we flip the inequality sign. $ p > -6 $
