Here is an example:

Eight **more** than a number x is **less than **2** times** the number.

8 **more** is 8 **+**

your number is x so now you have 8+x (or x+8)

**Less than **is the < symbol. > is the *greater than* symbol)

2** times** the number is 2x.

__8+x < 2x__

Also, __x+8 < 2x__ is another way you can write said problem.

Apply this information to your current problem.
