#2**0 **

3x + 2 < 8

-2 -2 subtract both sides by 2

= 3x < 6

3x/3 < 6/3 divide both sides by 3

= x < 2

#3**+3 **

We isolate x because we want the variables on the left hand side and the numbers on the right...

3x + 2 - 2 < 8 - 2

= 3x < 6

Note that this doesn't say greater than or equal to sign so 2 is not a solution...

1 is the only integer solution and the solution to the inequality is x < 2
