6-60.

Substitute the given values for *x* and simplify. If the inequality is true, then the number is a solution.

Substitute 2 for *x*.

Now simplify.

Is this statement true?

3(2)−2< 2−2(2)

6 − 2 < 2 − 4

4 < −2

See part (a).

Yes, it is a solution to the inequality.

No, 2 is not a solution to the inequality.
