First , U have to get the "w" in one side an all other stuff on the other side , to do this simply you have to divide both sides by 2 like this : $\frac{ 2(w - 5) }{ 2 } < \frac{ -8}{ 2 }$ nw you get : $(w-5) < -4$ nw get the 5 from left side to the right one nw you get : $w < 1$ Which is what ! "C" Simple, isn't it ! :D

You can also distribute the 2 first and then add 10 and divide 2 on both sides. 2(w − 5) < −8 2w-10 < -8 2w - 10 + 10 <-8+10 2w < 2 w < 1
