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

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
