# How do you solve the inequality x - 8> 10?

Jun 25, 2018

$x > 18$

#### Explanation:

$\text{isolate "x" by adding 8 to both sides}$

$x \cancel{- 8} \cancel{+ 8} > 10 + 8$

$x > 18 \text{ is the solution}$

$\left(18 , \infty\right) \leftarrow \textcolor{b l u e}{\text{in interval notation}}$

$x > 18$

#### Explanation:

Recall that we want to isolate $x$. Right now, $8$ is being subtracted from it, so to cancel it, we can add it to both sides.

We get:

$x > 18$

Hope this helps!
