#### Explanation:

We can solve an inequality like this if we remember the following rules:

- We can add or subtract any real number to both sides of an inequality without changing its direction.

E.g.# x < y => x+1 < y+1# - We can multiply both sides of an inequality by any positive real number without changing its direction.

E.g#x < y => 4x < 4y# - We can multiply both sides of an inequality by any negative real number if we change its direction.

E.g#x < y => -2x > -2y#

With those in mind, we can use those to isolate
