Explanation:

First, add #color(red)(4)# to each side of the inequality to isolate the #x# term while keeping the inequality balanced:

#5x - 4 + color(red)(4) <= -4 + color(red)(4)#

#5x - 0 <= 0#

#5x <= 0#

Now, divide each side of the inequality by #color(red)(5)# to solve for #x# while keeping the inequality balanced:

#(5x)/color(red)(5) <= 0/color(red)(5)#

#(color(red)(cancel(color(black)(5)))x)/cancel(color(red)(5)) <= 0#

#x <= 0#
