Answer:x<-3

This means numbers less than -3 are solutions.

Step-by-step explanation:9(2x+1)<9x-18 is the given inequality.

Distributive property applied:

18x+9<9x-18

Subtracting 9x on both sides:

9x+9< -18

Subtracting 9 on both sides:

9x < -27

Dividing both sides by 9:

x < -3

The solution is x<-3 which means anything less than -3 is a solution.

Answer:x < -3

Step-by-step explanation:using the distributive property, distribute 9(2x +1) so it’s 18x + 9, subtract 9x from 18x, subtract 9 from -18, divide both sides by 9, x < -3
