# How do you solve  x + 6 < 8?

Mar 29, 2018

$\left(- \infty , 2\right)$

#### Explanation:

$x + 6 < 8$

Subtract 6 from both sides:

$x < 2$

So this is true for all real numbers that are less than $2$. We can express this as:

$\left(- \infty , 2\right)$

The parenthesis indicate that the endpoints are not included.
