Work Step by Step

Start with the orginal inequality. $\frac{1}{4}+a\geq-\frac{3}{4}$ Then, isolate $a$ on its side, and you will get the answer. $(\frac{1}{4}+a)-\frac{1}{4}\geq(-\frac{3}{4})-\frac{1}{4}$ $a\geq-\frac{4}{4}$ $a\geq-1$ When graphing the inequality, start at -1, use a closed circle because we're using equal to, and make the arrow go forward, as $a$ is greater than -1.
