You would first distribut x over (3x-1) so that you get 4x-1x and then you would simplify the equation so that it is 3x<4. After that, you would divide both sides by 3. You would get x>1 1/3 as your answer and you would change the less then sign to greater than becuase you are dividing and anytime you divide with an inequality, you change the sign.
