# How do you solve and graph x+1 2/5 < 8/10?

Jul 27, 2015

First you rewrite the compound fraction into a simple one.

#### Explanation:

$1 \frac{2}{5} = \frac{7}{5}$

You can also rewrite the right hand part:
$\frac{8}{10} = \frac{4}{5}$

Now we subtract $\frac{7}{5}$ from both sides:
$x < \frac{4}{5} - \frac{7}{5} \to x < \frac{4 - 7}{5} \to x < - \frac{3}{5}$
