### What is 6 less than x?

If this is an inequality (6 is less than x, or 6 < x),
then x is an integer or other value greater than 6.
---
The variable statement "6 less than x" is (x - 6)
This is a value (variable and constant) where the value of x is
determined by an equation
such as x-6 = 4 (x is positive 2) or y = x-6 (y is 6 less than
x).

### How do you know when to use the less than symbol and when to use the less than or equal to symbol when writing an inequality for a situation?

It depends upon whether the inequality is strictly less than
(<), or if it is less than or could be equal (≤).
For example:
if x < 6, x can have any value less than 6, but cannot have
the value 6; but
if x ≤ 6, x can have any value less than 6, but can also have
the value 6.
Or put another way, x = 6 is NOT a solution of x < 6, but IS
a solution to x ≤ 6.

### 1 less than twice x?

The question is: What is x if 1 is less than 2x?
Solution method:
1. Reduce the equation to a value for x. i.e. divide everything
by 2
So 0.5 is less than 1x (0.5 < x),
2. Reverse the equation and change the signs
Answer: x is greater 0.5 (x > 0.5)
i.e. If x is greater than 0.5, then 1 is less than twice x.

### Translate and then graph the opposite of y is at most 6 less than twice x Two thirds of x increased by y is less than 2?

This question appears to have three different boundries. They
translate as follows: The opposite of Y is at most 6 = -Y ≤ 6 = Y ≥
-6 Y is less than twice X = Y < 2X Two thirds of X increased by
Y is less than 2 = (2X/3) + Y < 2 = Y < (-2X/3) + 2 By now,
these should all be simple to graph. The intersection of these
boundaries will form a shaded triangle with its base a horizontal
line that crosses the y axis at -6.
