Linear inequality, 2x+6 < 5(x3)

Mathematics  Ravin, Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 5:22pm
2x+6 < 5(x3) distribute 5 into x3
2x+6 < 5x15 move all x to one side
6 < 5x152x simplify
6 < 3x15 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
