    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.

    or -10>4x?

  • algebra 2 - ,

    2(x-5)>6(x-3)
    2x - 10 > 6x - 18
    2x - 6x > -18+10
    -4x > -8
    x < 2
