    the equation is just \[\large -3x+3 <6 \] right ?

    ok solving an inequality is the same process as solving a regular equation. The only difference is that if we are dividing by a negative number, then the inequality sign switches.

    \[\large -3x+3 <6 \] \[\large -3x+3-3 <6-3\] \[\large -3x <3\] ok good so far now divide by -3 on both sides and since we have a negative number, switch the inequality signs

    \[\large -3x <3 \] \[\large \frac{-3}{-3}x <\frac{3}{-3}\] \[\large x >-1\] yes
