**drwls**, Thursday, November 8, 2007 at 8:11pmI 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)
