We'll remove the brackets:

3v - 39 + 4 < 10

We'll isolate the term in v to the left side and we'll move all the numbers alone to the right side:

3v < 10 + 39 - 4

3v < 45

v < 15

**The inequality is satisfied by all values of v, smaller than 15, excepting the value of 15: v < 15.**

**3(v-13)+4<10 **

**3v-39+4<10 (open the brackets)**

**3v<10+39-4 (take all the constants on one side)**

**v<45/3 (divide by 3 on the other side to get v) **

therefore **v<15**

The inequality that satisfies the equation is v<15 therefore all the values **less** then 15 can satisfy this equation.
