# How do you solve for b given 6+b<8 or b+6 \ge 6?

Mar 27, 2018

$b < 2$ or $b \ge 0$

#### 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:
$b + 6 \ge 6$
$b \ge 0$

OR means that you satisfy either equation. So the answer is $b < 2$ or $b \ge 0$.

Hope this helps!
