# Chapter 2 - Section 2.7 - Solving Linear Inequalities - Exercise Set - Page 195: 42

$x \lt -4$ Refer to the image below for the graph.

#### Work Step by Step

Multiply $4$ on both sides of the inequality to obtain: $4 \cdot \frac{x}{4} \lt -1 \cdot 4 \\x \lt -4$ To graph this inequality, plot a hole (or hollow dot) at $x=-4$, then shade the region to the left of $-4$. (refer to the attached image in the answer part for the graph)
