# How do you solve and graph x - 3< -7 or x + 5>=8?

$x - 3 < - 7$
add $3$ to both sides
$x < - 4$
To graph this, we need to understand what the expression means. It is saying that $x$ is smaller than $- 4$. So the graph would be a portion that makes the expression true, going from $- \infty$ to $- 4$
