How do you solve this inequality?

2x over 4 minus 5x+1 over 3 is greater than 3

  • pre-calc -

    multiply each term by 12 to get

    6x - 20x - 4 > 36

    It should be easy from here on, let me know what you got

  • pre-calc -

    I assume that you mean
    (2x/4) - (5x+1)/3 > 3
    x/2 - (5x+1)/3 > 3
    Multiply both sides by 6.
    3x - 10x -2 > 18
    Add 2 to both sides and combine x terms.
    -7x > 20
    Divide both sides by -7. Multiplying by a negative number requires that the direction of > be reversed.
    x < 20/7
    (IF I interpreted your original inequality correctly)
