What is the equivalent to 3x-6<2x+4 ?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

We have to find the values of x for which the following inequation holds : 3x - 6  < 2x + 4

3x - 6  < 2x + 4

subtract 2x from both the sides

=> 3x - 2x - 6 < 2x - 2x + 4

=> x - 6 < 4

add 6 to both the sides

=> x - 6 + 6 < 4 + 6

=> x < 10

Therefore x < 10.
