Except for multiplying/dividing by a negative number, treat just like an equation.

First get rid of the parentheses by multiplying.

2x - 10 > 6x -18

Subtract 2x from both sides and add 18 to both sides.

You should be able to work it from there.

2(x-5)>6(x-3)

2x - 10 > 6x - 18

2x - 6x > -18+10

-4x > -8

x < 2
