Solve for x: -¾ x + 2(-x+ 3) < 10

I need work to be shown. I`m so confused on how I am to work the <10 side so if someone could please solve this for me that would be great:)

You need to open the brackets such that:

`-(3x)/4 - 2x + 6 lt 10`

You need to move all terms to the left side such that:

`-(3x)/4 - 2x + 6 - 10 lt 0`

You need to bring all terms to a common denominator such that:

`-3x - 8x - 16 lt 0`

You need to collect like terms such that:

`-11x lt 16 =gt x gt -16/11`

**Hence, all the value of `x in (-16/11,oo)` check the given inequality.**
