# Solve for x: 4 − (x + 2) < −3 (x + 4)

When one expression is greater than or less than another expression, we have inequality.

## Answer: x < -7

The given expression is the inequality. Let's see what does inequality means.

**Explanation:**

4 − (x + 2) < −3 (x + 4)

4 - x - 2 < - 3x - 12

2 - x < - 3x - 12

3x - x < - 12 - 2

2x < - 14

x < - 7
