can someone correct this for me.

7(x –3) > 5x - 14

7x –21 > 5x –14

-5x -5x

1x –21 > -14

+21 +21

1x > 7

1x / 1 > 7 / 1

x > 7

the line has an open circle right on number 7 with an arrow going to the positive side.

No. WHen you subtraced 5x from 7x, you should get 2x.

2x-21>-14

2x>7

x>3.5

sorry that was a typo
