How do I solve this equivalent equation? 5x +2 < 17 (again the <is underlined)
Do I subtract 2 from each side so it would read 5x < 15 (again the < is underlined) than divide each side by 5 so the x < 3 (again the <is underlined) is the answer? Also, how do I show this on a line number bar?

Yes! You got it! If you check back with my line explanation, since it is underlined, you darken in the circle and draw in a line for every number less than 3
