#### Answer

$w \lt -3$

#### Work Step by Step

Inequality: $ 3w + 4 \lt -5 $
Add 4 yellow tiles to each side:
$ 3w + 4 + (-4) \lt -5 +(-4) $
Simplify by removing the zero pairs.
$3w \lt -9 $
Divide each side into two equal groups.
$\frac{3w}{3} \lt \frac{-9}{3} $
Each green tile is less than three red tiles,
so $w \lt -3$.
