Answer

$(-\infty,-8]$
1512736573

Work Step by Step

$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$ To solve the given inequality, $ 4x+1\le-31 ,$ use the properties of inequality. For the interval notation, use a parenthesis for the symbols $\lt$ or $\gt.$ Use a bracket for the symbols $\le$ or $\ge.$ For graphing inequalities, use a hollowed dot for the symbols $\lt$ or $\gt.$ Use a solid dot for the symbols $\le$ or $\ge.$ $\bf{\text{Solution Details:}}$ Using the properties of inequality, the inequality above is equivalent to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} 4x\le-31-1 \\\\ 4x\le-32 \\\\ x\le-\dfrac{32}{4} \\\\ x\le-8 .\end{array} The red graph is the graph of the solution set. In interval notation, the solution set is $ (-\infty,-8] .$
