**Reiny**, Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at 10:31pmMany students have difficulty translating an inequation into an equation.

Sometimes it helps to rephrase the statement into something like ...

"three times the number is more than 8 times the smaller by 5"

3(23) > 8x by 5

so add 5 to the smaller side and it becomes an "equation"

3(23) = 8x+5

69-5 = 8x

x = 8

the smaller number is 8
