    you wrote: "6 > 8n" which means 6 is greater than the product of 8 and n :) You're close though :) Your question says " 6 MORE than the product of 8 and n" So product of 8 and n means 8n which you did (good job btw :D ) But now you want to focus on the "6 more" part. Here's an example/hint :) If i said " Zara had 4 MORE than than Sam" This would mean Zara = 4 + Sam, do you get it?

    oh...wait a minute LOl. Just to be safe, your question is to write " 6 more than the product of 8 and n" right? If so then it would be 6 + 8n

    well, 6 more than the product of 8 and n means : 8n + 6 We don't have an inequality so we wouldn't use "<" or ">"

    think of it like if i added 6 more, it would mean + 6 right? So that's why it would be 8n + 6
