What is the solution to the inequality 8(7-x)< 64?

Dec 7, 2016

$x > - 1$

Explanation:

Solve: $8 \left(7 - x\right) < 64$.

Divide both sides by $8$.

$7 - x < \frac{64}{8}$

$7 - x < 8$

Subtract $7$ from both sides.

$- x < 8 - 7$

$- x < 1$

Multiply both sides by $- 1$. This will reverse the inequality.

$x > - 1$
