# How do you solve the inequality 4p-8<7-p?

Apr 20, 2018

$p < 3$

#### Explanation:

First, let's simplify the inequality:
$4 p - 8 < 7 - p$

Add $p$ to both sides and add $8$ to both sides:
$5 p < 15$

Last, divide both sides by $5$:
$p < 3$
(Note: since you didn't divide by a negative, you don't have to flip the sign!)
