Answer:

#b<2# or #b>=0#

Explanation:

Let's look at the first inequality #6+b<8#. We solve inequalities similarly to equations:
#6+b<8#
Now we subtract #6# from both sides of the inequality:
#b < 2#

Now the second inequality:
#b+6>=6#
#b>=0#

OR means that you satisfy either equation. So the answer is #b<2# or #b>=0#.

Hope this helps!
