9-70.

Evaluate the inequality

*x*+ 4 < 2*x*− 3 for the following values of*x*. Decide if the given value of*x*makes the statement true or false. Show all of your work. Homework Help ✎*x*= 4*x*= −2*x*= 7*x*= 9

Substitute each value for *x* in the inequality given above.

**4** + 4 < 2(**4**) − 3

Simplifying, you get:

8 < 8 − 3

8 < 5

Is 8 less than 5?

False

**−2** + 4 < 2(**−2**) − 3

Simplifying, you get:

2 < −4 − 3

2 < −7

Is 2 less than -7?
