Complete using inequality signs. If π is less than or equal to negative five, then π plus one blank negative four.

So first of all, in this question, what weβre told is that π is less than or equal to negative five. But then what we want to do is use this to help us fill in the blank. And weβre told that π plus one blank negative four. Well, if we took a look at our original inequality, π is less than or equal to negative five, then we can see that what in fact has happened is weβve added one to the left-hand side. And therefore, we have to add one to the right-hand side because π plus one would give us our π plus one and negative five plus one would give us our negative four.

So therefore, our inequality sign must stay the same because in fact what weβre gonna have is the left-hand side and the right-hand side are gonna have the same relation with each other. So therefore, we can say that π plus one is gonna be less than or equal to negative four.
