1. Add 3 to both sides and then divide by 2. The < remains in the same direction

2. Add 7.2x to both sides. Subtract 20.8 from both sides. You are left with

10.4x > 31.2

Divide both sides by 10.4. The > remains pointed in the same direction, since you are dividing by a positive number.

That is how to solve the inequalities. I cannot explain it any other way, other than to do all the steps for you, and that would not help you understand. See if you can find a parent or classmate to help you understand what I wrote.
