# How do you solve and graph a+7<10?

Apr 27, 2017

$a < 3$

#### Explanation:

Subtract 7 from both sides to get
$a < 3$

Place an open dot on $a = 3$ because the point does not satisfy the inequality. Then draw an arrow in the $- \setminus \infty$ direction (left) because $a$ is going to be less than 3.
