How do you solve $6m+2<10$ ?

Alexia Hart

Expert

Step 1
First, isolate the m term on one side of the inequality while keeping the inequality balanced:
$6m+2-2<10--2$
$6m+0<8$
$6m<8$
Now solve for m while keeping the inequality balanced:
$\frac{6m}{6}<\frac{8}{6}$
$\frac{\overline{)6}m}{\overline{)6}}<\left(\frac{2}{2}\right)\cdot \left(\frac{4}{3}\right)$
$m<1\cdot \frac{4}{3}$
$m<\frac{4}{3}$
