how do i solve the following equations.

Problem # 1

3x greater than or equal to 2x minus 4

can someone correct number 2

Problem # 2

7(x-3)> 5x-14

7x -21 > 5x -14

7x-5x>-14-21

2x>-35

3x is greater than 2x minus 4.

3x>= 2x-4

subtract 2x from both sides

x>=-4

7(x-3)> 5x-14

7x -21 > 5x -14

7x-5x>-14+21 Notice the plus here. YOu have to add 21 to each side.
