    Treat the inequality like an equation, so you can rearrange for x, then write any integer that satisfies the inequality.

    An integer is a whole number. Can you think of a whole number that when multiplied by 6 gives you an answer that is greater than 42?

    6x >42
    x>42/6

    "Find a whole number so that when you times it by 6, the answer is more than 42"
    You can't pick 7, as 6 x 7 = 42. But 8, 9, 10, etc is fine
