$x \lt 8$ Refer to the image below for the graph.

Work Step by Step

Multiply $2$ on both sides of the inequality to obtain: $2 \cdot \frac{1}{2}x \lt 4 \cdot 2 \\x \lt 8$ To graph this inequality, plot a hole (or hollow dot) at $x=8$, then shade the region to the left of $8$. (refer to the attached image in the answer part for the graph)
