Given that 𝑏 equals 11, is the inequality 28 minus 𝑏 is less than 34 true or false?

In order to find if this is true or false, we need to take 𝑏 equals 11 and use it to substitute 11 in for 𝑏. So let’s go ahead and replace 𝑏 with 11. Now we just need to simplify. So on the left-hand side, 28 minus 11 is 17. And is 17 less than 34? Yes, it is. Therefore, this statement is true.
