How do you solve this inequality?
2x over 4 minus 5x+1 over 3 is greater than 3

multiply each term by 12 to get
6x  20x  4 > 36
It should be easy from here on, let me know what you got

I assume that you mean
(2x/4)  (5x+1)/3 > 3
x/2  (5x+1)/3 > 3
Multiply both sides by 6.
3x  10x 2 > 18
Add 2 to both sides and combine x terms.
7x > 20
Divide both sides by 7. Multiplying by a negative number requires that the direction of > be reversed.
x < 20/7
(IF I interpreted your original inequality correctly)
