You might be confused since there's a "<" instead of an equal sign, but just solve this as a normal equation, it's a quick, one-step problem and takes seconds to do! Remember, treat it as an equation, do not change or be thrown off by the sign. To solve:

  1. You have your original problem (x + 14 < -11). It's a one-step problem, you want to get "x" by itself. In order to do this, you subtract by 14 on both sides. (-11 - 14 = -25). Therefore, the problem is finished, and your answer is:
x < -25
