59x-81>3x+215

Since 3x contains the variable to solve for, move it to the left-hand side of the inequality by subtracting 3x from both sides.

59x-81-3x>215

Since 59x and -3x are like terms, add -3x to 59x to get 56x.

56x-81>215

Since -81 does not contain the variable to solve for, move it to the right-hand side of the inequality by adding 81 to both sides.

56x>81+215

Add 215 to 81 to get 296.

56x>296

Divide each term in the inequality by 56.

Simplify the left-hand side of the inequality by canceling the common terms.

Simplify the right-hand side of the inequality by simplifying each term.
x>37/7
