Can someone please help me with this inequality problem

-3-8>(4x+8)-8

I have no idea how to solve this problem but I would like to learn. Can you be kind to show me the steps so that I can use this as an example problem for other problems. Thanks!

    for the first few lines treat the > sign as if it were an = sign

    -3-8>(4x+8)-8
    -11 > 4x + 8 - 8
    -4x > 11

    Now when we multiply or divide by a negative, the inequality sign has to be reversed
    so divide both sides by -4
    x < -11/4
