Example: Solve 3x + 2 < 10. Solution: Given that 3x + 2 < 10 Adding 2 to both sides. 3x + 2  2 < 10  2 3x < 8 Dividing both sides by 3, we get 3x/3 < 8/3 x < 8/3 \ Any number < 8/3 is a solution.
Verification: Substituting x = 1 < 8/3 in the equation, we get Directions: Solve the following inequality. Also write at least ten examples of your own.
