To determine

To find:

The resulting inequality of the given inequality.

Explanation

Given:

The given inequality is 12>4 and the given property is Division Property of Inequality.

Property:

Division Property of Inequality states that when both sides of equation is divided by a same positive number then the inequality remains same but when both sides are divided by a same negative number then the inequality get reversed.

Calculation:

Use Division Property of Inequality and divide both sides of given inequality by 4
