# How do you solve 3m-4<2 ?

Jun 28, 2016

I got $m < 2$

#### Explanation:

What I would do is add 4 to both sides of the expression to cancel out the 4 on the left hand side and to get 3m by itself like this:

$3 m - 4 < 2$
$+ 4 + 4$

When you do that you should get

$3 m < 6$

Now divide both sides by 3 to get m by itself like this:

$\frac{3 m}{3} < \frac{6}{3}$

When you do that division you're left with m on the left hand side and 2 on the right hand side, with a less than sign separating them like so:

$m < 2$
