Can LG Ultrafine 4k Display be used with a MacBook Air from 2015?
I have a new LG 4k Display that works fine with my new (USB-C) MacBook Pro. But I'd like to use it with my former MacBook Air from 2015 as well (it only has a mini-display port - no USB-C). So, 2 questions: Can I use them together and if so, what is the adapter that will connect them? Thanks.

The document HT207447 "Use the LG UltraFine 4K Display with your MacBook or MacBook Pro" say that it requires a Mac with built-in USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports.
The MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2015) doesn't have Thunderbolt, so it means this display is not a Thunderbolt display. Therefore, I would try a USB-C to mini DisplayPort cable because they're relatively inexpensive. But displayPort won't pass USB signals.
