negative three times a number increased by seven is less than negative eleven

• algebra one -

-3(x+7) < -11

sounds like an inequality like what's depicted above

again replace the number with a variable such as x and think about how the operations are correlated with the words

now just solve to get x by itself, remember when you divide by a negative the sign will switch sides when it comes to inequalities

hope this helps
