2x+6 < 5(x-3) distribute 5 into x-3

2x+6 < 5x-15 move all x to one side

6 < 5x-15-2x simplify

6 < 3x-15 move 15 to other side

6+15 < 3x simplify

21 < 3x get x alone by dividing 3 on both sides

21/3 < 3x/3 simplify

7 < x and that's how you solve it.

2x + 6 < 5x -15

Add 15 and subtract 2x from both sides.

21 < 3x

Divide both sides by 3.

7 < x
