Solve then graph a+3 ¡Ü 17.
Sorry, I think i forgot to include the less or greater sign in the first post. Thank you very much.

Which is it, > or < ?
If a +3 > 17 ,
a > 20
You get that by subtracting 3 from each side. You can do the same thing if your symbol is < .
The direction of the > or < sign does not change when you add or subtract the same number from both sides.
