Homework Help: Math

Posted by Tyler on Wednesday, April 9, 2008 at 10:17pm.

How do I solve this equivalent equation? 5x +2 < 17 (again the <is underlined)

Do I subtract 2 from each side so it would read 5x < 15 (again the < is underlined) than divide each side by 5 so the x < 3 (again the <is underlined) is the answer? Also, how do I show this on a line number bar?
