# How do you solve 2- \frac { x } { 3} > 8?

Mar 27, 2017

$x < - 18$

#### Explanation:

$2 - \frac{x}{3} > 8$

Move the $2$ over,

$- \frac{x}{3} > 6$

Multiply both sides by $\textcolor{red}{n e g a t i v e}$ $1$, by doing so changes > to <,

$\frac{x}{3} < - 6$

Multiply both sides with 3,

$x < - 18$
