## Solved Example

Q. Solve for $j$.$\newline$$j + 4 < 6$
Solution:
1. Identify Operation: $j + 4 < 6$$\newline$Which operation should we use to isolate $j$?$\newline$$4$ is being added to $j$ in $j + 4 < 6$.$\newline$Subtraction should be used to isolate $j$.
2. Isolate $j$ Using Subtraction: $j + 4 < 6$$\newline$Solve for $j$.$\newline$$j + 4 - 4 < 6 - 4$$\newline$$j < 2$
