Problem:

x+3=>2x+1 and -4x<-8

-4x<-8

The first inequality can be rewritten

x <= 2 In words, x is less than or equal to 2.

You can get that by subtracting x+1 from both sides.

The second inequality can be rewritten

x>2

You get that by dividing both sides by -4 and reversing the > sign.

Both inequalities cannot be satisfied at the same time in this case.
