$x > - 19$

#### Explanation:

$8 x + 3 > - 149$
Let's start by subtracting $\textcolor{red}{3}$ from both sides
$8 x \cancel{+ 3} \textcolor{red}{\cancel{- 3}} > - 149 \textcolor{red}{- 3}$
$8 x > - 152$
Then, divide both sides by $\textcolor{b l u e}{8}$ to find $x$
$\frac{\cancel{8} x}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l u e}{8}}} > \frac{- 152}{\textcolor{b l u e}{8}}$
$x > - 19$
