You would isolate the variable to one side of the inequality.

A+7<10

A< 3

Whenever A is less than 3 the inequality is true.

If it were

-A-8 < 10

-A < 18

At this point you would divide both sides by -1, when dividing by a negative with an inequality the inequality flips so the answer would like:

A > 18
