Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to solve for x but still keep the inequality symbol in the middle. \[4x+6<6\] 1) you have to subtract +6 on both sides to leave 4x by itself, since you are subtracting it to the other side, change the positive 6 to a negative 6: \[4x < 66 \] \[4x < 12\] 2) divide the 4 to both sides to solve for x: \[4x/4 < 12/4\] since the 4's cancel on the left side of the inequality symbol, all you have to do is simplify 12/4 to find what is greater than x. \[x < 12/4\] \[x < 3\] 3.) To check, simply substitute x for anything less than 3 (meaning 4 and above).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04x+6<−6 Subtract 6 from both sides. 4x+6−6<−6−6 4x<−12 Divide both sides by 4. 4x / 4 < −12 / 4 x<−3
