• My translation of the word problem to an inequation looks like this: (3x+6)-8 < x+4 Do the operation on the left side: 3x-2 < x+4 add two to both sides 3x < x+6 subtract x from each side 3x-x < 6 Factor x(3-1) < 6 perform operation inside the parenthesis 2x < 6 divide both sides by 2 and get the solution: x < 3 So the answer is all real numbers that are less than 3. I hope that this is more helpful.
