Answer:

Take a look at the explanation.

Explanation:

You would first want to subtract the 8 from both sides to isolate the #x#:

#x+8> -3#

You then have this:

#x> -11#

I came up with #-11# because to 'subtract' a number from a negative, you are practically 'adding' the number to the negative.

Therefore, your solution would be:

#x> -11#
